looks like a buggy java installation.
consider un/reinstall java and c2.
The Construct 2 installation should be fine, since I'm always keeping up with the latest version and uninstall the older one before. And I've had this problem during many different versions of C2.
I also doubt it's java. Keeping up with the updates there as well, haven't had any problems. Thanks for your suggestions though.
Are you on the latest C2 release?
Yes, I'm on r63. Happened on previous releases as well.
What OS and service pack are you on?
Win7 Home Premium 64bit no service pack installed
I think it's most likely the HTTP server not shutting down - if you always use File preview mode, does it still happen?
I think you're right. Slipped my mind to try the File preview tbh, and yes, it doesn't happen if you use File preview mode. I tried to make it happen about a dozen times. Nada. Then switched to HTTP and after 4 tries I had my Construct2.exe ghost process again.
File preview helps some, but for quite a few features you would need HTTP preview.
