I have tried to run Construct 2 through Steam with multiple XPs and it doesn't work. Steam just says "Failed to start game (app already running).

Today I just got Windows 8 installed on my Mac, which I bought only to use C2. Does it work? Nope! The exact same error message occurs, and I really doubt it has anything to do with my graphics driver which is fully updated.

This is a major bummer, as I can't switch to Windows 7 now. The only OS C2 has worked with is W7 in my experience, which I borrow from a friend when it's available. The reason I bought W8 was to test out my games as W8 apps.

I think that you should consider fixing this bug as it impacts a LOT of users. I posted this problem on the Steam page as well, and others have answered that they have the same problem and don't know of any solutions.

Most likely a Steam problem.

I have been using C2 on Win8 since Dec 2012 and it works just fine aside from the known crashes which seam to be occurring on multiple platforms.

And I believe Ashley develops C2 on Win8 also.
If it can be done, someone on the web will show you how to do it!

I've also been having problems getting it to work consistently on Steam. It will either fail to launch or will crash (on windows 7).
