Okay, I'm not sure if it's a Vista thing or a hardware thing, but I am unable to see the game on a vista machine. I open it and the window comes up, and there are things happening in the background, but I can't see them.. It's just black. It will run on my comp(XP) and on 7, but the only computer that it HAS to run on (Vista - at school) it won't.
Any idea what's going on? I'm not using any 3rd party pugins, in case that helps. The Vista machine is MUCH more powerful and substantially newer than the machine I am making the game on. Any suggestions are much appreciated.
It's not the OS.
Does it run if you try to launch it directly from within construct?
What version of Directx?
DX- 9 or 10, I know that it's compatible because I updated it myself.
About running from the preview, I'm not sure. I think I checked, and I don't think it did run right, but I'll check for sure on Monday.
Does anyone know of any issues with DX or Construct and nvidea 200 series cards? I haven't been able to find any.
Thanks for the help.
Construct doesn't run on 10. Only the latest 9.
You can run the DirectX 9 Installation in Windows Vista. It will install the missing DirectX 9 files. Same works for Windows 7.
Are your graphics card drivers up to date? That's often the source of problems.

Drivers are up to date, DX9.
Solved. It was an issue with administrative rights and the way the computer was set up. Thanks everyone for your help and suggestions.
