How do I make the preview work in browser

Get help using Construct 2

Post » Wed Oct 21, 2015 7:54 pm

nothing works for me..
I would like to use C2 for my projects, but still not working when i launch on the browser..

can't find localhost:50000 adress on any browser.

I'm on win 7 home premium.
I wonder if someone who had this issue for a long time found where it can come from ?
I read the whole topics on bug reports, and nothing could help much.

PS: I precise i tryed with tutorials projects. So it should be clean

when I press the preview button, either my browser gets opened automatically, or a new tab is opened in my browser..

what browser are you using for preview?
Is the browser installed on your PC?
I told my dentist I had trouble with my teeth and asked her to fix it without looking in my mouth..

Have you been through the suggestions in the Troubleshooting Construct 2's preview server as previously mentioned by Ashley?

Found this on the interwebs.
Not sure if this is relevant to your situation, though..

Type localhost - it should be a blank white screen.
Check your hosts file.
Note: Windows 7 won't let you edit the hosts file. You have to save a copy somewhere, edit it, then copy and paste it over the hosts file.
And ensure your firewall allows port 50000

Hosts file checking and many other checks are mentioned in the tutorial, so maybe he's already checked this.

Is your firefox trying to force https ? How to disable it? I don't know, it might be a plugin or something. Couple people having issue that firefox is forcing viewing over ssl

Glad its working on chrome.
Good to change to port.

@Zenox98, yeah, but with win 7 you edit the hosts file thinking it is all good and it doesn't save it :( hence you got to copy it somewhere else, edit it, and copy it back.
