Having trouble getting Imagick working with php on windows.

Windows Server 2016.
IIS 10 with php manager 1.2 installed and working
pHp 5.6.30 installed and working (php-5.6.30-nts-Win32-VC11-x86)
Can't seem to get imagick working in php.

Installed ImageMagick (ImageMagick-7.0.5-2-Q16-x86) into path C:\IM - also set in PATH system variable
Extracted the php_imagick.dll from downloaded (php_imagick-3.4.3-5.6-nts-vc11-x86) and placed into \ext folder of PHP 5.6.30
Set php.ini to use php_imagick.dll extension
MS VC11 VS12 redist x86 installed
Rebooted Server, several times during process.

Using php_info() - imagick does not show up at all.

Any help appreciated.

PS: Has previously installed on a separate PC using Win 10 and XAMPP (using Apache) - adding imagick using similar steps to above - worked fine - following steps from ""
Not using XAMPP or Apache on server (above).

Thanks for the advice.
After trying many of the options - did not really get anywhere.
So, using GD worked the simplest.
