Cannot preview browser "Node-Webkit"

  • Problem Description

    Trying to preview my capx using "Node-WebKit". I get an error.

    Observed Result

    [attachment=0:17elhl10][/attachment:17elhl10]

    Expected Result

    To preview my project in a desktop-like application without browsers.

    Operating System and Service Pack

    Windows 7, SP1

    Construct 2 Version ID

    R195 (64-bit)

    Things I've try to fix the issue

    Uninstall, Reinstall.

    Uninstall, disable avast!, Reinstall, loaded Construct 2 normally and with administrator right mode enabled and try to preview project.

    Uninstalled, reinstalled to a different location, different disk and folder name.

    I am familiar with avast! having removed .exe's before but I have avast! disabled when trying this, all chests and scan results of avast! have no trace of interfering.

    I also noticed that when I downloaded the latest release and extracted (installed) it, nw.exe wasn't located in the folder at all and I'm not sure if it was suppose to be there. Could I have a corrupt installation, should nw.exe be in my C2 installation?

  • Have you installed the separate node-webkit installation found here https://www.scirra.com/node-webkit ?

    This has been needed for a few builds now, and if you haven't installed it, you should really start reading the release notes.

  • It's not a bug.

    C2 come now without Node-webkit.

    To use node-webkit with preview and export, download http://www.scirra.com/node-webkit and install.

    With that, you can use the preview and export <img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/icon_e_smile.gif" alt=":)" title="Smile">

    It was a fresh download, I hadn't checked down as far as 6th Nov, 2014 to see that it was unbundled.

    Oh okay. I wasn't aware that they split it. I'll download and try that then. Thanks.
