That's my setup also.

So you're seeing an image when the file runs?

Yes. The first thing I would suggest is that, after building the game, go to the Index tab, then the Contents page, then scroll down until you get to section 4 ("Figures"). That should show whether Inform found your picture in the right place.

Thanks. Yes, the image is there.

I get the feeling that the Location Images extension is not installed properly. Because I can make the image display using

when play begins:
display Figure of fruit.

But

The room-illustration is Figure of fruit.

does not work for me.

I've attached a screenshot of my extensions, in the Index/Contents page.

Does this look right?

The version I have in my library is Simple Graphical Window v 9/160121
The previous poster who fixed the issue deleted all their extensions, then used the Library in the Inform7 IDE to re-download all of them.
You may not need to go that far; try opening your extensions folder and remove Simple Graphical Window, close and re-open Inform to make sure it's no longer there, then go into the Extensions>Library and tell it to download the extension. You should get the "official" updated version.
It's possible if you downloaded it from the Inform 7 website or any other location, you got a modified version possibly based on an older build of I7. If the version number you have is higher than what's in the library, I believe Inform will resist updating it.
Sometimes people will modify extensions for a specific purpose and make that available if it fills a need.

Just checked, library versions are:
INSTALLED Location Images by Emily Short (Version 1). Allows the author to set per-room images and show these as the player moves from room to room. Requires Simple Graphical Window by Emily Short.

INSTALLED Simple Graphical Window by Emily Short (Version 9/160121). Provides a graphics window in the upper part of the screen, in which the author can place images; with provision for scaling, tiling, or centering images automatically, as well as setting a background color. Extension requires Glulx Entry Points Version 7.

No, that looks all wrong. What I get (all extensions from the Public Library) is below. Those versions of extensions you have look to have come from the "Friends of Inform 7" GitHub page, which contains experimental and work-in-progress extensions: for example, the Public Library version of "Simple Graphical Window" does not need "Flexible Windows". You don't want to be using those versions without knowing exactly what you're doing.

You want to delete all the extensions you've installed, and then get them again from the Public Library (on the Extensions Tab).
