Not really sure what other info I can give. Just looking to get this export to work.
 
Have you tried removing the apostrophe from your project name?

So instead of Shoot 'Em Up, you just call it Shoot Em Up

Bit of a guess, but that might be causing problems with the compiler/exporter.
 
I never fail to realise that special characters mess up file names.... lemme give that a try.

Edit: Yep, that worked. Did even need to change anything in the game, only the "Save As" title and it worked fine. Thanks for the quick help peri!
