PIMSY is a Microsoft Windows application, which means it runs on a Windows PC or on an instance of Windows on a Mac computer. The installation process is very simple and should only take a few minutes.
There is an element of Windows that PIMSY requires on your computer which is “.net 4.0 framework.” The framework is native to Windows and is installed in all recent versions. Most likely, you will not need to download and install the framework, because it comes with all current versions of the operating system.
