Attach a Capx

Description of Capx
I've attached both capx and the exported project in nw.js. In my pc it works allright, but I sent it to a web that sells desktop games and they told me that the game didn't load. After some debuging we've find that in his pc the expresion UserFolder from nw.js is returning \\ instead of his real route (Users\katy.kaiser).

She also has proved in one of his mate's pc and it also doesn't work.

I copy here the response they've given me:

Hi Sergei,

I got the same error when I tried the 32-bit and 64-bit windows version (using the Run as Administrator technique). It doesn’t locate the proper folder (first button populates “\\” only) and doesn’t actually create any folders in my Users\katy.kaiser\AppData folders.

The test version did function correctly on my Mac, however, so that’s good news!

Kind regards,


Steps to Reproduce Bug

I can't reproduce this, it works here, and you say it works for you too.

We can't fix bugs unless we can reproduce the problem. It could be something broken on just that user's system otherwise.
