Well, nevermind all that... Apparently, the problem is that... there was no video card. And I'm not using that computer anymore.
Now I have a DIFFERENT problem, which still makes no sense. This computer DOES have a video card, and it successfully did the DirectX tests. The Direct Draw, Direct3D, and all the tests were successful. So I opened up Construct, and of course, it can create a new game. But after throwing on a sprite, a tiled background, I threw an effect onto the layer, and I got this error:
"Construct encountered an error in the display engine. Please report this problem to the application developer.
Failed to create Direct3D 9 device. (0x8876017c)"
Like I said, unlike the other computer, THIS one has a video card, so it can actually create a game. That's one step. But now, a new problem, and one that makes no sense... Why is it having problems with Direct3D when I try using ANY effects? When all the Direct tests were successful? That just doesn't make sense!
