It seems 6.0.1 is not available anywhere:


So I decided to try


It installs some dll's like CORE_RL_magick_.dll, but no libWand.dll.

A search for libWand.dll in Google returns only two hits, the
first of which is for a development version of ImageMagick for

Then I tried to copy all my dll-files from cygwin into the
same directory, where drscheme.exe is located, but that
didn't work (I suspected so, but I had to try). The
"start dll" is cygwand-6.dll.
