Problem with NWjs 0.13.0 RC 3 and Construct 2 R221

Bugs will be moved here once resolved.

Problem Description
A C2 application I use to generate XML files for my serious game and which worked fine before moving to the latest version of NWjs
is now crashing when exported to an .exe file (works fine when running in test mode within C2).

The problem occurs when I move to a new layout and then click with my mouse into the first Text Box. The application simply closes.

Attach a Capx
Can't provide a Capx as content is confidential, but as the problem only occurs on export and there's no active code behind the Text Box,
it is not needed.

Description of Capx
The application contains several layouts with many Text Box and List fields which are used to generate content for an XML file.

Steps to Reproduce Bug
  • Move from main layout to another layout
  • Click with the mouse in the first Text Box

Observed Result
App quits without any error messages

Expected Result
Nothing (just be able to type text)

Affected Browsers
Not relevant (.exe for Win64)

Operating System and Service Pack
Windows 7 64 bit with all latest patches applied

Construct 2 Version ID
Verssion 221 (not sure if I need to use the latest beta versions to solve the problem with NWjs 0.13.0 RC3 ?)

A .capx is not optional, as the Bug Reporting Requirements stipulate.

You should be able to recreate in a small .capx and provide exact steps, which would then enable Ashley to get to the problem much quicker.

Otherwise, it's likely this report will be closed automatically by Ashley.
If your vision so exceeds your ability, then look to something closer.

This report can be closed.

For some strange reason, I tried again this morning and the problem doesn't occur anymore.

The only reason I can see for this is that I installed NWjs RC3 yesterday and did these tests without rebooting my PC. Perhaps the installation
of NWjs should ensure computers are restarted after installation, as this is the only explanation for the issue I encountered.

Closing. Please refer to the bug report guidelines, the fact you cannot share your project should not be a factor in your report.
