I probably have a unique problem. I would like to use Construct to make programs that run on desktop computers as part of our existing win32 software. The export to exe presents problems including the size, 33-40MB for a simple program is excessive. Also the exe is not going to work as I need to read some data out of the registry, including the students Name, ID etc.
Then I thought I hit on a marvellous solution.
Create a an embedded chromium webpage within a win32 Delphi program and just open the html on the local machine. (The local machine does not have internet). This way I only need to include the embedded Chrome once and the HTML files are not so large.
The snag is that for some reason if you export a project to HTML files it need to be put onto a server. If I double click the index.html I get a message and black screen.
Can someone explain that requirement? Is it by design to limit use or is there a real reason for it?
Is there a work around that I could use?
