Windows Asset compiler not finishing, can't run game

python-b5

Member
I exported my game over to my laptop to work on it on the go, and while it works fine on my desktop, the laptop won't run the game. It starts compiling normally, and then stops after it reaches this message:

Code:
[Compile] Run asset compiler
It freezes after that, and never finishes compiling - I've waited for 10 minutes at a time, and nothing happens. Why is this happening? I'm on Windows, and compiling with VM.

Right click the console at the bottom and clear it, then try compiling and post the full output from it.

Forum rules are to leave 48hrs for people to reply before bumping posts, and considering it’s an Easter Weekend this would apply even more so as people have lives and will be doing things other than checking the forum.

I notice your username in the output is “python-b5”.
Does your account have admin rights / priveledges as that sounds like it may be a login name for a school network machine or works laptop or similar where your account will probably have minimal system access.

What happens if you try to compile a fresh empty project on the laptop?
Are the versions of GMS on your main machine and laptop the same?
