Crashes when opening or starting new projects are almost always graphics driver bugs. If it is a serious problem, complain to your graphics card maker, and don't buy from them again... (Intel are especially crap, and I personally will not buy any hardware using Intel graphics chips!)
In the case of ati it's not developers fault, because we are the users who are turning on the catalyst additional effects like the v-sync that cause this problem. I would suggest to put into the construct2 readme or similar some info for ati users, and nvidia users.
I used to have a intel integrated video card too, and i ran without problems the beta of construct classic and past versions. And true the intel drivers are crap, but this because intel integrated video cards are not for gaming or for develop games, it's only part of the computer to be able to run operating systems, if these video card were not included they won't run windows vista, 7 and 8.
Hope this info help others :)
