Imagemagick/gswin32c and alfresco-pdf-renderer

I'm using alfresco community edition 5.2.4 5.2.f  (manually installed).  When I upload a document and mouse over it, I can see in the logs "Failed to perform ImageMagick transformation" and "convert.exe FailedToExecuteCommand "gswin32c.exe"


I know that ImageMagick needs ghost script to convert a PDF to a PNG, but I'm confused why I need ImageMagick at all if I have alfresco-pdf-renderer configured.


in alfresco-global-properties, I have:

img.root: E:\\alfresco\\imagemagick

img.exe: ${img.root\\convert.exe

alfresco-pdf-renderer.root: e:\\alfresco\\bin

alfresco-pdf-renderer.exe: ${alfresco-pdf-renderer.root}\\alfresco-pdf-renderer


Why is alfresco still using imagemagick for PDF conversion and not using the alfresco-pdf-renderer?
