Immersive Studio v4.2 for Windows - Dated 06/11/13
This is the latest release for Immersive Studio available to all subscribers of the Beta Testing Program. The Immersive Studio v4.2 is not final and may contain errors and bugs.
For anyone operating behind a restricted IT system you may prefer to either download an ISO CD image of the software which you can burn to CD or a ZIP file which you can extract and copy to a USB stick. Here's the links for both options:
Note: If you copy the contents of the zip file to a USB stick, you can run the application direct from the stick - or you can copy to a folder on your HD. Nothing is installed and so this is a very IT Dept friendly delivery method!
