Can't reproduce, works here. Are you sure Java is installed correctly on your machine and that you have full read-write permission to the export folder? Does it reproduce on any other computers?

Yes, Java is installed correctly and verfied (both 32bit and 64bit versions). I have tried on two separate machines. Java version is 7 update 65. I even tried a brand new empty project and on both machines I get the same error. Both machines I am logged in as admin, also running Steam as an administrator and Construct as well.

Both machines are fresh installs (one machine is a new machine, the other is my old machine which I reloaded windows on)

My version of Construct is the steam version, personal license. I have given the "Everyone" group full access to the folder and it is the same issue.

Could this be a Steam version or windows 8.1 issue maybe?

Same error for me if the minify javascript option is checked during any export.
"Error during export, cannot open file c2Runtime_min.js"

The error only happen with the construct2 64 bits version, if I use the 32bit version, the minify is working well.

As Bossmojoman java 32 and 64bit are both installed and updated.

Found a random forum about unrelated Java bugs, and decided to see if I have the same version. Upon opening CMD and typing in the command "java -version", it reports back with a similar worded error: "Error: could not open `C:\Program Files\Java\jre6\lib\amd64\jvm.cfg'" Boom. It is a problem with java. Now keep in mind, this is even after having updated Java to the most recent version (version 7 update 67).

Decided to take another look at the Java files on my drive... noticed something out of place.

The Solution for me: Delete the JRE folder in WINDOWS; it doesn't belong. C:\WINDOWS\jre

Very strange, but it works likes a charm. Minify Script now works, as does java -version command in CMD.

Hope this helps you guys out!
