We are adding frequent questions to our Knowledge base. Perhaps, the answer to your question is already available.

That's why we recommend you first to try to find an answer in our Knowledge Base before contacting the support team:


1. To find the information you need type keywords into the search bar located above the article dashboard;

2. Check out the solutions for frequently asked technical questions in the section technical support.


You can also get support in our 2+2 forum poker software support thread:

http://forumserver.twoplustwo.com/167/commercial-software/icmizer-2-a-1206579/

This is the best place to ask some general questions about using ICMIZER 2. This isn't the best place to ask questions about orders or subscription status, for that we recommend using our support email.


If you don't find the answer to your question anywhere, send an email to us at support@icmpoker.com.


It would be great if you specify the problem in the subject line like:

If you wish to get your problem resolved asap it would be very valuable if the email will include:


  1. A screenshot of the error, if the issue is with the work of ICMIZER, SNG Coach, or Replayer. For this you can use the "Screenshot" button in the ICMIZER menu.
  2. A video (using your smartphone or camtasia), if something strange is related to behavior of software. Often recording and showing the weird behavior is much more efficient than describing it.
  3. Text of the hand history, if an error occurs with a specific hand history format. Use the function “Share this result" on the results screen, if possible, so we can see the exact hand or situation where the problem occurred.
Once we receive your email, we’ll contact you as soon as possible.

Web browser Google Chrome is not suitable for work with ICMIZER 2.


Unfortunately, Google Chrome stopped supporting the Microsoft Silverlight plug-in, which is required for ICMIZER 2.

We recommend you to use other Web browsers:

  • For Windows OS users: Internet Explorer or FireFox
  • For Mac OS users: Safari or FireFox


You can also download ICMIZER 2 and install it on your computer.


Would ICMIZER 2 work in Google Chrome in the future?

Google completely withdrew the support for Microsoft Silverlight. There is no information if they would resume it in the future.

As for us, we plan to develop a new version on the platform that supports Google Chrome, but not presently.

In order to run ICMIZER 2 requires Silverlight plugin.

It can be downloaded here: http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?linkid=149156


As of 7th March, 2017, the web version of ICMIZER is only supported in Internet Explorer on PC and Safari on Mac


You can download ICMIZER 2 to your computer by doing the following


1. Download Silverlight & ICMIZER 2 downloader here: http://www.icmpoker.com/en/download/

2. Intall the both programs


Make sure that the Silverlight plug-in is installed correctly.

It can be downloaded here: http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?linkid=149156


How to check that the problem is in ICMIZER 2 and not in Silverlight:

Go to the page with the demo of Silverlight's possibilities (when you launch Silverlight for the first time your web browser will request the permission to run the plug-in. We recommend you choose the item that permits to run Silverlight at any time).


If you see video samples on the site page, it means that Silverlight works normally and the problem is in ICMIZER.

If you see the gray screen on the site page it means that you have problems with Silverlight.

In that case, we recommend you follow these steps:

1. Update Silverlight to the newest version. Delete Microsoft Silverlight from your computer and then install it again.

2. Restart your computer.


Usually it helps to solve the problem. If not, check the following:

1. You uninstalled all old versions of Silverlight.

2. You use the new version of Silverlight.

3. Your operating system and web browser are compatible with Silverlight.



Attention: Google Chrome stopped supporting the Microsoft Silverlight plug-in, which is required for ICMIZER 2.


We recommend you to use other Web browsers which are compatible with Silverlight plug in:

  • For Windows OS users: Internet Explorer (note that Microsoft Edge doesn't support Silverlight)
  • For Mac OS users: Safari

How to clean a corrupted Silverlight installation and then reinstall Silverlight (only for Windows)


If after all steps you still have a problem with Silverlight, it means that the current version of Silverlight is corrupted or the previous version of Silverlight wasn't uninstalled completely.


In some situations the problem can be solved only with special program that helps to uninstall Silverlight completely.


Here you can download this program.

Follow the instructions on the site to use the program properly.


If the deleting and reinstalling Silverlight didn't solve your problem, send the request to our support team. We will contact you as soon as possible.

When you try to copy or paste text to ICMIZER 2 (in the form of ranges or hand histories) you will be prompted to allow it to access clipboard. If you choose NO it will remember the choice till you change that setting in Silverlight configuration menu.


To do that, do the following:


1. Right click on ICMIZER 2 and choose Silverlight in the popup menu



2. Navigate to Permissions tab. There make sure to Allow clipboard access to our domain www.icmpoker.com



After this operation ICMIZER 2 and Silverlight will be able to access clipboard and you will be able to load hand histories copied in text form.


If the remember password function isn't working

Navigate to Application Storage tab and make sure that it is allowed




The two buttons perform different operations, so the difference in results is normal

1) Calculate Nash ranges button will find an approximate nash equilibrium solution for all players using pure strategies. Pure strategies mean that in player ranges the hand is either played or not. Mixed strategies could use a hand a % of the time different from 0 or 100.
With that said a precise Nash equilibrium with pure strategies almost never exists.

2) The Calculate button works completely different. It fixes all opponent ranges right where they are and calculates one range for hero given the situation. Since Nash equilibrium was an approximation, this precise result will almost always be somewhat different. In some special cases it can be significantly different, it would mean that situation is difficult and unstable.

We have an article where I explain this effect in more detail:

We don't check manual calculations. Actually, we created ICMIZER to avoid really complicated manual calculations which may take a few hours even for simple situations.


We permanently control ICMIZER results. That's why we believe in their quality.
