Legacy GM [SOLVED] "Error Creating Stand-alone: Can't find valid runner-data" GM 8.1 Pro

I was trying to compile a game, and it claims that it can't find valid runner-data. Any idea why? I'm not very in-the-know in this area, so..

Could someone help? Thanks :)

i might be late, but near the end of 8.1's life they introduced a bug which causes it to randomly corrupt a few bytes of the rundata file. You can't avoid it, but you can simply grab a fresh rundata file from the 8.1 installer.

i use a batch file to replace rundata with a backup when it gets corrupted.
