Freeze upon loading file

I was going through the tutorial linked below, and the Construct 2 froze when I tried to open the tiled background I'd saved to my PC. Is there a way to fix this?

I'm already at the latest drivers, (310.90, according to NVIDIA Control Panel) so I don't think that's the case.

Hmm, I haven't heard of anyone else having the same issue. Have you installed all updates from Windows Update?

I had, yeah. However, due to entirely unrelated events I was forced to upgrade my OS. I'm running Windows 8 now, and I get a slightly different result. Instead of freezing, it outright crashes and I get the error below.

A problem caused the program to stop working correctly. Windows will close the program and notify you if a solution is available.

Did you try updating your graphics card driver on Windows 8 too? I'm sure if this was C2's fault we'd be hearing about it from far more people than just the two reports in this thread, so I'm fairly sure it's a graphics driver issue or some other system problem.

Upgrading to the 313.96 beta drivers, I'll see what this does.

Edit: Just installed the drivers, bug's still there. I didn't restart, but that's never been a problem for me before when it comes to nVidia's drivers.JBridge2013-02-05 04:13:42

I'm not sure what to do about this since I can't reproduce the problem and it seems to be working smoothly for 99% of people, except for one or two rare reports. Can you reproduce the problem on any other computers, or is it just one machine?

Tried it again on the same machine I've been using, and it works now. I have no idea why, but it does.
