    Hello!

    I'm learning how to use gamemaker so I'm making the clown catch game turtorial in order to learn. I'm finished making the game and can now test run the game. But unfortunately I get an error that it can't find the file?

    I think it might be because I have game maker installed on my disk(F) and I also have the project file there but I'm not sure...does anyone know how to solve this?

    Thank you in advance!

    Where is your project stored? Is it opening correctly in the IDE and can you run it from there?

    Can you disclose what the solution was? Just in case someone in the dark, distant future comes across this thread with the same problem.

    Of course.

    Create a new folder in the local disc and in that folder, in that folder create the following in the map: local, cache, backup, project.
    in gamemaker go to preferences and change the files location for Temp directory, Asset cache directory and backup directory to the new folder you created
    Go to start in the windows start menu and write "regedit"
    Go to menu and "edit" and chose "search"
    write "gamemaker" in the search field and press search
    remove all regestry key you find
    press F3 and remove
    continue until you've removed all keys that has anything to do with gamemaker
    restart program

    Thats odd, game maker should never use the registry since their platform also works on MAC - it doesn't use the registry at all. Unless, you're using GMS1.4 ofcourse, which makes this topic reside in the wrong forum group ^_^
