Windows Cannot create single runtime executable.

Hey guys,
to preface: I've opened an official support ticket about this, but with the special promotion (extra 10%) running only until the 27th I believe - i really want to get this solved before I commit to buying the software.

The problem is that I cannot create a standard .exe - all it does is drop a temporary .tmp file on my desktop, or any other chosen export path. Installer.exe and zipped application work!

Here's the compile, if its any use:

Any clues as to whats causing this?
Turns out it's somehow tied to my project - something funny in the game-settings maybe? My older projects export correctly.

EDIT for more Info:
GM Version 1.4.1757
I've tried a completely fresh install following this guide: http://help.yoyogames.com/hc/en-us/articles/216753708-How-to-perform-a-fresh-install

[After discussing this on a private conversation, we discovered that a piece of malware was infecting Ariak's single runtime exes, and Bitdefender was silently squashing the exe. Ariak has since resolved this issue and can now build exes again.]
