The directory "pngout" inside the construct2 program files directory is empty..

It seems to me pngout.exe is no longer used and has been replaced by pngcrunch.exe (which does exist in it's directory)..

Is this true?

@LittleStain

I have r214 installed and I have both pngcrush and pngout installed in their own folders off 'C:\Program Files\Construct 2\exporters\html5\tools'.

Ok..
Downloaded pngout.exe from Here put it in the correct folder and everything is working as expected..

I have no clue why it was missing, but this solved my "bug"..

Out of interest, did you do a full, clean re-installation?

I just reinstalled r214, and checked after uninstalling to ensure the 'Tools' folder was empty, before reinstalling, and it definititely installed 'pngout' as well as the other tools.

I always do the de-installation provided in the installer..

Have had this problem for a long time. I normally just zip the tools folder (where the whole pngout is) and when it happens I just extract it to the C2 installation folder again. Think it might be related to Antivirus or maybe Windows security settings or something, however haven't been able to solve it. So just do it that way whenever it happens.

pngout.exe is included with the installer. Try reinstalling Construct 2. If you still have trouble try disabling any antivirus or security software that may prevent the installer creating executable files.
