I have found a problem with ImageMagick 6.0.4 running with
xorg-x11-bin-dlls 220.127.116.111-1 - and I've found a temporary fix.
After a recent update to my Cygwin installation, which updated the X11
packages amongst many other things, the 'convert' program stopped
working. It simply exited silently with an error status. I discovered
with gdb that it was failing with an unknown exception but I could find
no more information. It turned out, thanks to running 'cygcheck
convert', that this was because of a missing DLL, specifically
A bit more digging and I found that this DLL used to be part of package
xorg-x11-bin-dlls but has been removed with the latest release -
18.104.22.1681-1. It existed in all versions (as far as I have been able to
find out) up to this one.
I also discovered that this DLL itself relies on another missing DLL:
/usr/X11R6/bin/cygdps-1.dll which I found in the same package.
I've fixed the problem for myself by grabbing these DLLs from the
previous version of this package (xorg-x11-bin-dlls-22.214.171.124) and
hand-installing them by copying them into the relevant directory.
Fortunately they are still compatible with the other DLLs they depend on.
