So recently I've been having an issue with both the installer/updater and the compiler. To start i'm on windows 7 64bit with a completely fresh install short of all the visual studios, direct x, java, etc. About 6 months ago Game maker worked perfectly fine on the same computer, i tried to run it again a week ago and got this error even with a blank room. So i figured it was time for a fresh install of windows. Although I'm still getting the same issues. To start GMAsset Compiler keeps crashing: Only returning useless info: Compile started: 11:50:10 AM "C:\Users\Red\GameMaker_Studio\GMAssetCompiler.exe" /c /m=win /config="Default" /tgt=64 /tg="C:\Users\Red\AppData\Local\gm_ttt_59856\\TextureGroups.txt" /to="C:\Users\Red\AppData\Local\gm_ttt_59856\\TextureOptions.txt" /obob=True /obpp=False /obru=True /obes=False /i=3 /cvm /tp=2048 /mv=1 /iv=0 /rv=0 /bv=1567 /gn="Project1" /td="C:\Users\Red\AppData\Local" /cd="C:\Users\Red\Documents\GameMaker\Cache" /sh=True /dbgp="6502" /hip="127.0.0.1" /hprt="51268" /o="C:\Users\Red\AppData\Local\gm_ttt_59856\gm_ttt_12126" "D:\Game launcher\Project1.gmx\Project1.project.gmx" Unhandled Exception: System.IO.FileNotFoundException: Could not load file or assembly 'System.Windows.Forms, Version=126.96.36.199, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=b77a5c561934e089' or one of its dependencies.

Asset Compile finished: 11:50:44 AM Compile finished: 11:50:44 AM So after having these issues I figured there was a program or runtime I was missing so I tried to run the windows installer for the trial version. But after it installs I try to run it which starts the update process and that crashes as well. every other program on my computer seems to work flawlessly why is GM running so poorly these days?
