[quote="Aeal5566":dmipvrkk]have you updated your c++ runtime?[/quote:dmipvrkk]

It says I have C++ 2005/2008 Redistributable

Is this the correct one that I need to upgrade to?

http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/deta ... laylang=en

If not, can you link me to the correct one?

I have Windows 7 if that helps

the first thing I would check is that you correctly installed all of the construct dependencies. This includes the c++ runtime and the latest DirectX

Copy the .persist file that pertains to the .cap you're trying to run to another location, then delete it from its original place.

It could also be that you're trying to open caps created in newer versions of Construct than the one you're using.

Update to the latest version and try opening them in that.
Most recent examples by people are written in the latest unstable version (because that's the one they're using by default), and will need that version to open them.

Krush.
