Ashley, I am running Construct 2 as an administrator on my laptop and saving to my own reverse domain folder designation to keep everything organized with the many engines I have used in the past at: C:\Users\John\Desktop\source\projects\com\scirra\tutorials.
In light of your post, even though I am logged into my laptop as an administrator, I just went to C:\Program Files\Construct 2\Construct2.exe and set Construct2.exe Properties > Compatibility tab > Privilege Level -> Run this program as an administrator.
Hopefully, this will force my administrative privileges for running Construct 2 if for some reason running as an administrator does not work as default.
I am running Windows 7 Home Premium (6.1.7601 Service Pack 1 Build 7601 ) and have not noticed this problem like I did running Windows Vista in the past where I had User Account Control (UAC) problems all the time.
After making this change I see 'Construct 2 (Administrator)' displayed in the top of the Construct 2 program window which I did not see before "forcing" this program to run in Administrative mode.
Thanks for your reply Ashley and for letting me know if there is anything I should be doing more than what I just set in the UAC and I will let you know if I continue to have this problem after making the above change.
I am really enjoying using Construct 2 r95 since July 19 and purchasing it on July 25. Running a quick search in my evernote account I see that I originally ran across Construct 2 this past November 22, 2011 and again on December 15, 2011 when I was looking at various other platforms (Corona, Moai, Unity, Unreal, Stencyl, Game Salad, and others) in the early adopter stage of Construct 2 to augment / replace what I was doing in Flash and wish I had started using Construct 2 back then as it seems a lot more intuitive to me which I hope to use for quickly prototyping and then building games.
