For questions about using Classic.

I installed Construct and have tried to create ANY new file, but it gives me the following error:

"There is not enough video memory to open this frame editor. Please close some other editors and try again."

I even tried to uninstall and reinstall Construct, but the same thing happens.

Here is my System Information Summary:

Here is the info about my video card:

Hmm, that's not right... my best guess is you need to update your graphics card driver. There's version 191.87 here: ... _whql.html
Yours says you're only on 182.67. It might be an issue they fixed.

Just resurrecting this to ask - did this help fix the issue? It's useful to know what kind of errors are caused by buggy drivers, so we can spot similar cases in future and offer the same advice.
