Is there any command line tool available to convert emf to png images?

I tried the convert utility from ImageMagick, but it says

decoder for emf not found

According to this page: http://www.imagemagick.org/script/formats.php

EMF R Microsoft Enhanced Metafile (32-bit) Only available under Microsoft Windows.

Use LibreOffice:

libreoffice --headless --convert-to png image.emf

The other answers here did not work for me, but one I found on stakoverflow did

Another way is to use inkscape:

inkscape -e file.png source.emf

See inkscape --help for more export options (area to export, dpi, image resolution, background color etc).
