Getting Errors when opening Project - File Location Changed

  • Hello,

    I am moving a project that I have been working on for some time from one PC to another. In the end the file path on the new PC is not the exact same as old PC and I am getting errors locating files. The project wants "c:\users\userid\desktop\folder" but I have different userids on the new PC and I do not want to have a specific userID created just so I can work in Construct 2.

    Is there a way to change the file path outside of Construct 2 to get around this issue.

  • Well, the easiest way is to probably change your user ID on the new computer long enough to open the project and resave it to a different file and then you can change back your user ID.

    You could try copying the old file into a new file using the new computer user ID and see if that works.

    If it opens on your old computer try exporting it directly to a USB file instead of saving and see if that works.

  • Just tried and I get the same error. Come to think of it I have moved projects to various PCs in the past without issue. Maybe I am missing some files I am not remembering to move. Here is my error.

    Construct 2 Check failure

    Check failure! This is probably a bug:

    cannot find animation frame either in last_path or project location

    Condition: FileExists(GetProjectPath().c_str())

    File: Projects\AnimationFrame.cpp

    Line: 239

    Function: class std::basic_string<wchar_t,struct std::char_traits<wchar_t>,class std::allocator<wchar_t> > __cdecl AnimationFrame::GetActivePath(void) const

    Build: release 241 (64-bit) checked

    Component: Construct 2 IDE

    (Last Win32 error: 3)

  • Think I got it. Found some more files on my old PC that I did not think needed to be copied for this exact project to work...but walaa...no errors now!
