convert.exe: unable to open image
`'c:\easyphp\www\mediawiki/images/e/e1/BenR.jpg'': Invalid argument.

Was this the slashes, or the single-quotes? Can you confirm with current version?

I'm sorry, but I can't remember the issue very precise. I do remember someone
telling me that DOS is very picky about the syntax of arguments, and I also do
remember that I eventually solved the problem. The Wiki I build is operational
for almost a year now, but I'm no longer the one maintaining it.

Recent use of ImageMagick convert to create thumbnails under Windows works for
