@IanFromBarrie Win10&11 running fine, perhaps try to white list the app in your AV software (just as a test)

Downloaded again, no joy. Running Windows 11 Pro on a new 16-GB HP box. Strange.


lintalist 2023-09-06 14:20

@anFromBarrie no such problems here, runs fine

As of today (2023-09-06) neither the 32-bit nor the 64-bit version 1.1.7 open on my Windows 11 box.

Imagine falling prey to its born-again success, I suspect ?
Its Byus.Net host is enforcing traffic choking, temporarily, one would hope...:-(

To the lucky dames/fellows who grabbed the new distro before this recent server hiccup :
a full changelog is also included as a "whatsnew.txt" in

While reaching for the changelog just now: "This site is now out of traffic. Please visit later." :(

Allelluia !
Imagine has Risen from Limbo, after a mere five years in hibernation...;-)

Complete Changelog history: (2003-2017)

Word to the wise:
Backup your current "imagine.ini" before merrily installing the new version...
