Hey there,
I've been trying to build my Ember project which requires GraphicksMagick (gm.exe and convert.exe) using `choco install graphicsmagick` however, `convert.exe` seems to be in conflict with something for formatting hard drives and `gm` is never a valid command to use. I know this might not be the appropriate place but I'm picking at straws at this point.

    Seems like choco install does not update the path, so operating system does not know where to look for gm.exe. Please add set path=C:\Program Files\GraphicsMagick-1.3.25-Q8;%path% command after choco install and gm convert should work OK.
    Note however that folder name GraphicsMagick-1.3.25-Q8 does not look like set in stone for many years and can be changed, so be ready to adjust.
