I installed ImageMagick 6.3.7 and configured it with the image-dired 
customization window along with the thumbs customization window but still 
cannot display thumbnails. I always get the error message "could not create 
thumb for ....". There may be something else missing in the image-dired 
configuration besides what you mention here. I have put the full path name of 
ImageDirect-6.3.7-Q8 for the image-dired thumb creation programs.
