Hi! Thanks for writing here. I’d like to help you get it up and running if we can!
It sounds like you are running on Windows?
Is there a logfile.log in the directory where the executable was unzipped? If so, that might provide some clues.
Currently AGAVE is very particular about which images it can open. It wants to be fed multichannel, single-time OME-TIFF files that have pixels stored as uint16. It can read some tiffs generated from imageJ as well, but they still need to be single-time and uint16.
(We are actively working to expand the possible file types from that starting point.)
There will be a fresh build soon that will stop crashing on files it doesn’t recognize and instead just log the error, so at least the program doesn’t stop working.
