My graphics card drivers are up to date. I have DirectX 9, but I updated anyways. Reinstalled Construct, but to no avail. Still isn't working I don't believe it has anything to do with DirectX because when I try to make a regular app it still freezes.
Hmm, I don't know what it could possibly be then. Isn't there a way to set windows to record crash logs somewhere? I've never used it, or XP so wouldn't know where to find it. But maybe it would have something in there that could at least give the devs or somebody, an idea why it's happening.
You could always try testing your drive(s) and memory, see if there's a problem with those. Or maybe checking the runtime files are being installed correctly, could be a problem with those too?
Sorry, it's really hard to say what it could be, there's nothing much to go on. :\
