Unable to read svg format

Post by Poto »

I used this command in CMD and wanted to convert .svg to .png.
It reports an error and cannot read the image in svg format.

Code: Select all

"D:\Documents\Quicker\NConvertByPoto\nconvert.exe" -out png "D:\Downloads\ed956188-ec0b-4fab-8cfb-c1e99349da76.svg"
Here is the error.

Code: Select all

** NCONVERT v7.80 (c) 1991-2021 Pierre-E Gougelet (Apr 27 2021/08:27:27) **
        Version for Windows Xp/Vista/7 x64  (All rights reserved)

But isn't XnConvert based on NConvert? Why can XnConvert do what Nconvert can't do? My understanding is that Nconvert is the image processing core of XnConvert, and XnConvert is the GUI for NConvert

Am I understanding this correctly?

Why XnConvert can handle svg but NConvert can't handle svg format?
