How do I ... Get my XDK Back!!!

Get help using Construct 2

Post » Sat Mar 21, 2015 3:15 pm

Hello all,

Been using XDK for months with no issues but something weird happened. I performed an 'update' to XDK and now its disappeared! I cant find an .exe., shortcut or ANY reference to XDK. I tried re-installing but same thing. Install completes fine, but there's no shortcut or .exe after install. I do have an 'Uninstall' option from Control Panel but that's it.

Here's the critical question. How do I get all my apps back ? If I do figure a re-install, what about all my apps and their unique keystore? Can I sync projects from the XDK cloud to my PC ?

Any help appreciated.

Thanks.

Normally you can find it under C:\Users\YourUserName\AppData\Local\Intel\XDK

! You need to change YourUserName for your actual user name !

It's then a good idea to make a shortcut on the desktop.

This is strange. Ok, then delete the complete folder (in ..AppData\Local\Intel), download the current XDK release & install it new. I think this is the only thing you can do about.

Thanks so much - that got it back.

Unfortunately all my apps have disappeared which sucks as I now cant update them as they all had unique keystore keys. Surely its possible to import a project from the xdk cloud?

@JLH1964 in the Xdk there is a button to import existing project files push that then navigate to your exported app folder and the xdk created a .xdk file open that and your project will be added back

I see there is - thanks so much. So I guess I should be saving all my projects to Google drive or similar.

Thanks all. Back in business :)
