Fatal error: Class 'Imagick' not found in C:...\imgborder.php on line XXX

Please help me to install Imagick. :-(

Check permissions on the .dll file to make sure the Apache user has read access to the file. Better change the permission of the [PHP]/extension directory.

To change the permission

  1. Right click the file(s) or folder(s)
  2. Select "Properties"
  3. Select "Security" tab
  4. Click on "Edit" button.

Change the permission of user to Full Control.
