Cannot find plugins on startup - possible fix.

  • This really is an interesting piece of software and I'm looking forward to having a good faff around with it

    Starting up Construct - and any of the pre-compiled demos - resulted in a long, long series of "cannot load plugin" errors. The files were present and accessible. I tried the usual suspects of run as admin, xp compatibility, but found it was DEP that was causing the problem.

    Data execution prevention has been known to cause some problems here and there but I was wondering if someone could look into this as adding an exception might be dangerous for the erm, computer-illiterate

    To add an exception, if you're curious: Right-click my computer | properties | advanced | performance settings. note: windows will not allow you to remove the exception, I've found, if you delete the file before trying to remove it's exception. PITA, but that's windows!

  • Hmm, which plugins do this? And why precisely don't they load.. can you explain in a bit more detail?

    Thanks for investigating .

  • Hmm, which plugins do this? And why precisely don't they load.. can you explain in a bit more detail?

    I've no idea why some plugins do not load, only that turning off DEP seems to fix this

    These are all the plugins that do not load; after the error messages Construct displays its main window. I've not tried doing anything with it after this point.

    *phew*
  • That's really peculiar, generally it's just a few which don't load.

    I'll read more into DEP and try figure this out.

  • I've no idea why that would happen. Construct is just loading DLLs like any other application. Maybe DEP is overzealous...
