The fact you are using the free version says you didn't abide by the laws of performance. Your project shouldn't go bigger than 250mb, and that is on pretty big game. My guess is you have some pretty big images (lots of pixels) which might be 1mb compressed, but images decompress in memory which means even 15 very big images will bring most computers to a standstill.

Ashley has writen lots with regards to images/performance and tips etc.

indeed i have a very big game.... i want to make a complete game...diffrent levels, level select, main menue , tutorial........
and also i am still considered a beginner thus i am not very good at compresssing my games to the limit! but i'll try to do that

And with C2 you can make very very big games ;)
I see you said it is not in preview... I've seen this issue before on the forums. What OS you using?
I can't rememeber what was behind - something about loading assets and how the OS did it. I can't remember if it was XP, Vista or both.... or windows 8.
I would image the issue would be on a xp/vista.
I can't remember where I saw it.
If it is recent, then drop a bug report, I'm sure ashley will enlighten you.
You think you can do these things, but you can't, Nemo!
Just keep reading.
Just keep learning.

If you have been saving as a .capx, then unpack the .capx to a new folder using such programs as Winzip or 7zip. This will give you the project structure. You should then be able to access all the files and images. Try overwriting some of the largest images with your newer smaller ones, ensuring the names are exactly alike.

This may not work, but worth a try, and if it's in it's own new folder, then it won't affect the original.

Alternatively, upload to a free hosting site such as Dropbox and post the link here for others to try and fix it for you.
If your vision so exceeds your ability, then look to something closer.
