Having trouble getting Imagick working with php on windows.

on
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 "http://ourcodeworld.com/articles/read/349/how-to-install-and-enable-the-imagick-extension-in-xampp-for-windows"
Not using XAMPP or Apache on server (above).

If it's any consolation, you're not the only one with trouble here.  The online man pages are full of tales of woe, and a few glimmers of hope.

FWIW, I've had very good luck using the GD package.  Just a thought in case you're stuck on ImageMagick.

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