"It comes with a lot more features and possibilities. Make better games!
(and no more annoying messages)"
Well, I bought the license almost immediately after downloading the program to show support to the creators, and it didn't do anything. It downloaded a .txt file to my computer and the program still heckles me about updating. I am able to use the project files, so in some ways it is behaving like I have a license, but I really want it to stop unjustly asking me to upgrade when I already did. Maybe it's too early in the morning but I couldn't find a support ticket system or a contact page so I am asking for help in the forum, if that's alright.
Is this a known problem with a fix?
Develop games in your browser. Powerful, performant & highly capable.
As it states on the purchasing part of the site, send all licensing issues to and Tom will take a look as soon as possible. They are usually quite prompt about such things, and will hopefully sort you out quickly.
Did you put the license txt file in the same subdirectory as C2?
As others have mentioned, place the license txt file in your install directory (typically c:/programs/construct2) then relaunch.
If this doesn't work, email and we'll help you get it working!
Thank you so much; that fixed it!
In case other people are making a search and finding this topic there is also the tutorial "How C2 licenses work, paragraph "Using your license" explaining more on the process.
