  • It was updated and I also reinstalled it but after a while, now it works. Weird.

    Could've been a temporally server outage, happens a lot recently. Next time please include the error code, since there isn't much I can do without it.

  • Whenever i open either Construct launcher or the "C3LUpdater", they open bottom right of my screen everytime. how do i fix this problem

    Are you using anything that could be considered out of the ordinary, on your end? Multi-monitor setup, OS running inside a VM, Taskbar on top or similar? Also how far off-center is it, few pixels or more?

    From a technical standpoint it's fully relying on Windows for doing the window centering job. No clue why it seems to fail on your end. Usually if the centering process fails, Windows tends to put the app window on the top-left or bottom-right (if taskbar is on top).

    Hm, My taskbar is at the bottom and im not using any VM. It could be that im using "Bootcamp" to dual boot my macos. So one drive runs macos and the other runs Windows 10.

    also heres a screenshot where it is.

    Not sure if that could be it. If you're up for testing, I could upload a minimal testing project later. It'll basically try to center the window manually on startup.

    Here you go: github.com/TheRealDannyyy/Construct-3-Desktop-Launcher/raw/master/Workspace/Experiments/WindowCenterTest/WindowCenterTest.exe

    It's a simple app that centers the window based on the values given by Windows. You simply press space to center the window. (Source code is live on GitHub, if there are any concerns.)

  • Would appreciate an update on the testing project. This workaround is ready to be merged and released, if it works of course.

    Looks like your OS is reporting wrong window position values. It only seems to be the reporting that's bugged since the debug text below displays the correct absolute position of the window.

    I see two possible solutions to this problem. I could add a shortcut to set the window position to 0, 0 (top-left corner of the screen). Another option could be to save the window position for each session for both the launcher and updater.

    Would the shortcut be good enough or should the window position be saved as well?

    Shortcut would be good enough

  • Shortcut would be good enough

    Would you mind giving this slightly edited version a try real quick. It just sets the window to 0, 0. Hopefully this will work as expected.
