Problem Description

There is a wierd glitch where I cant change the preview browser(it just doesnt respond, other time doesnt see the installed web browser - but it is there for sure. I even tried reinstalling the browser but that did not work either), which happened on the other 2 computers as well.

I am attaching an empty capx file, the one that I used for my game but have cleared almost all data. Just open it and try to preview the file in a different browsers; start with Firefox, then Opera and Internet Explorer (scroll down for link to file).

I have set different browsers to default browsers to no avail too. I tried to reinstall Construct 2 as well but that did not help either.

Tested your .capx in Firefox, IE and NWjs (latest alpha) in C2 r218.

All worked perfectly.

May be worth uninstalling C2, deleting the registry setting for C2 (be VERY careful), reboot and reinstall C2.
If your vision so exceeds your ability, then look to something closer.
