Magick.NET Any CPU Requirement/s

Sep 9, 2014 at 3:49 AM

I would just like to inquire the requirements needed to be able to successfully use the functionalities found in Magick.NET Any CPU dll. Should both 32- and 64-bit Microsoft Visual C++ Redistributable software be installed on a server that the website is running? I have tried installing 64bit only to the server, but error comes looking for 32bit version (Magick.NET-Q16-x86.dll). The platform of the OS is 64bit. What could cause this issue? Is the dll dependent on the OS platform? Please help as I found it confusing on my end. Thank you.

I have updated my documentation ( to explain how the AnyCPU version of Magick.NET works. Please let me know if this does not answers your question so I can improve the explanation.

Thank you. The explanation found on the documentation does answer my question. I would like to know where i could find MagickAnyCPU.CacheDirectory using the DLL (Magick.NET-AnyCPU.dll)?

There is a class called MagickAnyCPU in the ImageMagick namespace that has a static CacheDirectory property.

Is there a way to use the dll without installing the MS Visual C++ Redistributable to the server?

I have contacted the user from the topic '' to ask if my suggestion worked yesterday. I have not received an answer yet but you could give it a try yourself.
