I'm trying to figure out if this is a bug or not.
I just got a license for Construct 2 from a Microsoft representative who came to my school. It is a student license.
I was able to set up the preview on LAN feature the night I got the license. It worked fine.
Now, I right click on the Construct 2 desktop icon and choose Run as Administrator. When I run preview it says: Unable to start HTTP server on ... You may need to restart Construct 2 with administrator privileges. Construct 2 will attempt to start the server on localhost instead.
Like I said, I did run as administrator (I've tried this many times and restarted many times as well). I'm really puzzled. I have checked my settings from the firewall and it looks the same as it did the other night when it was working. I can't make a .capx to demonstrate this. I've searched around for this issue and I'm not seeing anyone else with it. BTW I'm running on Windows 8.
If anyone has some ideas, I would really like to hear them and try them! I would really like to use Preview on LAN. It is awesome!
