#25 CORE_RL_magick_.dll not loaded


I have installed
-Scilab 4
-downgraded to ImageMagick-6.2.5-0-Q16-windows-dll.exe

I found few information about how to install SIP.
From "A_SIP_UserManual.pdf" I learned I had to run
"exec loader.sce". I found 2 scripts with that name :
- one in c:\Program Files\scilab-4.0\contrib\ - another one in the siptoolbox\ directory.
I executed both. The second one always give a message
about CORE_RL_magick_.dll that couln't be loaded. All
other previous dll were loaded sucessfully.
CORE_RL_magick_.dll is present in the directory.

At this point, SIP doesn't work.

Any help would be appreciated. Thanks.

    Could you give it a try to the latest Windows SIP installer?
    The latest Windows SIP installer contains all the necessary
    files of ImageMagick, so you need not to install a
    stand-alone ImageMagick manually. Can the latest SIP solve
    your problem?

    Thank you for your bug report!

    Thanks for your answer. Unluckyly the problem remains.

    I have uninstalled SIP and ImageMagick. After I forced a
    reboot, I installed sip-0.4.0-bin-win32-sci4.0-beta.exe
    (3927338 bytes) I had just downloaded. I rebooted once
    again. Then from Scilab-4.0 I did
    File / Exec... loader.sce.

    Scilab displayed

    After several links were loaded sucessfully, the script
    aborted as before (as with the stand-alone ImageMagick),
    with the same error message:

    link failed for dll C:\Program
    link(ImageMagickPath + 'CORE_RL_magick_.dll');
    !--error 236
    link: the shared archive was not loaded
    at line 21 of exec file called by :

    I also tried builder.sce and loader.sce again, with no success.

    For example imread is an unrecognized "variable" in Scilab.

    I use WinME on an Pentium MMX with 128 Mo RAM.
    Is it possible that CORE_RL_magick_.dll requires a higher
    version of Windows or a more powerful computer?
    I was able to load sucessfully an image with ImageMagick
    before I uninstalled it.

    Thanks for any help.

    I had the same problem adn I "fixed" it by unistalling SIP
    and then install ImageMagick-6.2.5-5-Q16-windows-dll.exe and
    then installing again SIP.
    All works fine!

    Thanks a lot for all your anwers and your help.
    I tried all what you proposed. Unluckily the "error 236"
    is still there ("link failed" and CORE_RL_magick_.dll not
    Don't worry, all this isn't vital for me.

    I am very new to SciLab.....

    Where/How do I add this line to the 'PATH' variable? In
    Matlab, there is a path variable that can be accessed
    > path

    In 'help' I did not find anything like that in here?

    Running FILEMON shows what is loader missing /almost everytime X11.DLL/.
    Before running FILEMON try this:
    as reported in some forum you must add to your PATH c:\Program Files\scilab-4.1\contrib\siptoolbox\lib, but WITHOUT quotes!!!
