Why AIM doesn't work on Windows 10?


#1

I’ve just downloaded AIM 5.1 by phoenix for Uglyows10 coff coff Windows 10 but when i run it the entire pc goes in a freeze-status where i cannot do anything… even the task manager freezes if i open it. How i can solve this problem? :\


#2

so, exist a pogram to fix that on AIM phoenix website


#3

have you tried compatibility mode?


#4

Download Aim-tamer, it fixed most of my crashing issues. It’s available on Phoenix’s website like what @Machintosh_Lapfan said. Make sure to run it before you launch Aim itself, otherwise it wouldn’t have any effect on controlling AIM.


#5

Mine too. So Do NOT Run AIM when your PC Starting.
Or next time use AIM Tamer.


#6

Mine works fine :stuck_out_tongue:


#7

Problem solved for AIM… Windows 10 is a sh.t on my Windows 7’s pc it works fine


#8

Good


#9

Agreed, 10 uses somehow 1.6gb idle RAM…


#10

I’ll suggest to microsoft’s feedback application something like: “If you want to update your shittows 10 forever please do something for Windows 7 too” :\


#11

Windowswindows 10 sucks at old apps compatability


#12

Well you can pay Microsoft to get extended updates… but that’s for Enterprise users only :slightly_frowning_face:

A way i easily simplified the process of running AIM on my windows 10 pc is that i added AIM Tamer into my startup folder in windows 10 and it’d launch at startup and i set it to also open minimized so it wouldn’t slow down loading my desktop.
