I'm running Windows 7 and IMVU would crash on every startup until I did what the original message described. I'm really good at computers, but I didn't think the problem could relate to that. Thank you.

Well, I tried that link up there. It got me to the Update thing, and then it crashed again.

Is Windows Vista not made for IMVU anymore?

Haven't got on the client for a while. And I'm having similar issues.
I have Windows Vista, and right when I click run, it just shows "Restart IMVU? It appears that IMVU has crashed. Would you like to restart IMVU? Yes/No." Even if I click yes to restart, the same exact message pops up again.

If the crashing continues then i doubt it has something to do with imvu, it must be a virus or something...

I know this is an old issue but I actually ran into this problem today with a computer running Windows Vista Home Premium. I couldn't figure it out, every time I would try and open the program it would just say it had crashed and asked if I wanted to restart. Yet no matter how many times I clicked yes, it continued to give me the error message. So, naturally I uninstalled and reinstalled thinking that would fix this issue, to no avail. I did this four times before I figured that it was an issue on my computers side. I checked my DEP settings and found no issue there, I tried messing with firewall settings and still nothing. Then all at once it hit me, I realized that IMVU uses the .net framework published by Microsoft. I downloaded the latest version and rebooted my computer and taadaa, it worked perfectly. So to anyone that has this issue this may be a way to fix the problem that you hadn't thought of, if not you might want to look into your DEP settings and/or firewall, also it never hurts to try and run as admin. I hope that maybe I have helped someone, if I have just drop my a message and let me know, have a great day and remember. They may just be pixels here, but there is always a person behind the keys.

Try this at your own risk!
Works on mine and my best friend's computers Wink
I AM NOT SURE IF THIS HAS BEEN POSTED ANYWHERE ELSE IN THIS FORUM, but o well, I'll just post it.
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
At first, My Vista computer crashed on all versions except 382.0, but after this fix, i tried it with 394.4 and 394.0, which would crash occasionally. But after some testing, 393.8 works best after this fix, there are no crashes and you can have the best performance and display settings on ur IMVU client! (Unless you open millions of windows, of course xD)
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
I just tried out a new way recommended by others for other games to prevent instant game/client crashes, and it works for mine! I'm having Windows Vista Home Premium! xD
I'm had version 382.0, but now I'm having 393.8! Please try it out, it may work! Before I did it, the new client simply crashed upon start-up, but now it doesn't! BUT, it may crash later! (With versions 394.0 or 394.4) But it doesn't crash upon start-up. Crashes occasionally. like, when you load too much stuff.
-------------------------------------Solution---------------------------------------
To all vista users:

Go to this screen, which is located at
'Control PanelSystem and MaintenanceSystem'
And select 'Advanced System Settings'
Image here! CLICK!

Then, when you're at 'Advanced System Settings', select the 'Advanced' tab, then select 'Settings' under 'Performance' xD
Image here! CLICK!

Under the new window 'Performance Options', Select the 'Data Execution Prevention' tab. click on 'Add. . .', if 'IMVUClient' is not in your list.
Image here! CLICK!
Image here! CLICK!
Select your IMVU folder, then type 'IMVUClient' in 'File name', and make sure that 'Executable Files' is selected in your drop-down menu for 'Files of Type'. Then click 'Open'

Click 'Apply', then click 'OK'
------------------------------------Results----------------------------------------
These are the results of my tests on the clients:
Click to download!

Client versions without any crashes:
392.0
393.18

393.8

Client versions on which it crashes when you load too many items:
393.20
394.4
394.0
395.0


Tip:
If you don't want your new clients to crash when you load too many items, you can always Select 'Settings' in your IMVU client and reduce the target frame rate.
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Do tell me what versions urs crash on, I'm testing other versions right now also! Do tell me so that this guide can be more accurate! I will update this once more comments are added Wink
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
This solution probably will work for other applications also! You will be able to see 'Maplestory' and 'Gunz' in the screenshot. Both applications and IMVU had constant crashes until the recommended solution was applied! So, if you have the same problems with other games, you can try this solution too! xD



i cant find the imvuclient file...where is it?

This thread is old and out of date. There is no compatibility issue with Vista or Win7.

For anyone who has begun having problems please try adding the fingerprint exe file to the list of trusted aps for your firewwall and antivirus. This is a recent security addition to the IMVU files and if blocked it stops IMVU working.

The exe files are found in C:/users/username/AppData/Roaming/IMVUclient

in order to see the folders you MUST alter your windows explorer settings to show all hidden files and folders. Click on organise, click on folder and search options, click view tab. Find the setting to show all hidden files folders and drives.

*locking as this thread contains a lot of out of date information
