I recently purchased Construct 2 through Steam and I'm having issues exporting projects. The 'contact us' section on the website directed me here. I have filled out the bug form below, but I feel this overview might be more helpful to initially describe the problem:
* I have the paid personal license through Steam
* I use 32-bit Vista Home Premium
* I have the latest version of my graphics card drivers
* I get a DEP Error and a Crash whenever I try to export any Project
So far so boring, BUT, there is a twist at the end of this story... Having tried and failed to get the export working with my paid Steam version, as a last resort I downloaded the free standalone version of Construct 2 and installed it. The export works perfectly with no errors, every time.
This for me rules out graphics drivers as a potential issue, and points towards either Steam, or the Steam version of C2 being the issue. As I've used Steam for years with no other issues I thought it best to raise this as a Construct 2 bug
As a workaround, I can use the Steam version to create games, save the projects, then switch to the standalone free version to export them, but obviously this is not ideal. As a footnote I'd like to say that having used other IDEs, Construct 2 is just ridiculously good, so if I can get this sorted then that would be great. Thanks
Link to .capx file:
This is an exporting issue that affects any and all .capx files I've tried it with, so I'm not sure this is relevant. For the purposes of testing I used the included 8 direction movement example.
Steps to reproduce:
1. Open any .capx file in C2 through Steam version (paid personal license)
2. Export Project to HTML5 webstite
1) The following errors are generated:
"pngout.exe has stopped working" (this is generated multiple times)
"Data Execution Prevention has Closed pngout.exe
"Java(TM) Platform SE binary has stopped working"
Construct 2 Crashes
Completion of export process with no errors
Operating system & service pack:
Vista 32-bit Home Premium (99% sure it's on SP2, will confirm when I get home)
ATI Graphics 5000HD series (latest drivers)
Construct 2 version:
NOTE: Problem is repeatable at every attempt to export using paid Steam Version, but problem does not occur at all on the standalone free version of Construct 2
