I would like to share this tutorial as this happened to me today and also to help other people who have had similar errors.

As was mentioned in the forums before, I believed that this error occurred when cleaning programs such as CCleaner cleans up or deletes all or parts of the temp files at:

'\\?C:\Users\User\AppData\Local\Temp\

My Setup:

1. Construct 2 - R190(64-bit)

2. Windows 7 64-bit

3. Installed Cleaning Programs: CCleaner

Prior to Event:

I was just updating some text in the game. There was no major editing. I did notice however that my cleaning program was running in the background (it automatically runs at a preset time on my computer, in this case, at 8:30am).

The Error:

This error didn't allow me to open my project files at all.

How to Fix It:

WARNING:

**PLEASE backup or copy your .capx file before making any changes. Make 2 or more extra copies. Or edit a copy .capx before you start on fixing your actual game.

I will not be liable for your mistakes and losses!**

1. Open up the .capx in IZArc or Winzip or any file zipping or extracting programs.

You can download IZArc for free: izarc.org

2. Check if there are any missing folders or files.

A normal .capx should have these folders:

3. In my case, the Textures folder was missing, along with any files in it, including the tiledbackground.png file. Close the IZArc program for now.

4. Create a new folder in the same place the .capx is situated. Rename it to Textures.

Since the tiledbackground.png file is missing here, create or copy a tiledbackground.png file into the Textures folder.

5. Reopen the .capx in IZArc. Click the Add button on IZArc.

6. Add the Textures folder. Make sure that the tiledbackground.png file is in that folder before you add it.

7. Your files in IZArc should now look like this:

8. On IZArc, click TEST to test archive integrity. If you've done it right, it should be fine.

Close the IZArc program.

9. Try to run the game on Construct 2. Error messages will still appear if there are other missing files and folders so please replace them as in the steps above.

NOTE:

The tutorial above only shows an example / solution for a missing Textures folder and a missing tiledbackground.png file. If you have other folders and files missing, please replace them as in the steps above.

WARNING:

**PLEASE backup or copy your .capx file before making any changes. Make 2 or more extra copies. Or edit a copy .capx before you start on fixing your actual game.

Remember, this tutorial is for fixing: "'Cannot Find Object Texture File' Error" and not anything else.
