    Running fully updated Gamemaker 1.4 on my Laptop. White screen happens on launch of any project, including demo projects included. I've not seen any solutions for this other than disabling wifi, which is not something I want to do in order to compile projects! This advice was also for gamemaker 2, so don't know if this issue exists on 1.4 or has a fix. HELP!

    No replies yet... but, I discovered if I launch via HTML5 then everything launches correctly. However, this does not solve my issue when building for Windows. My issue is still ongoing :(

    Do you have the spring creators edition of windows 10? Thats what started the whole white screen thing for me and many others, a supposed fix is to disable focus assist in windows settings which kind of works, i still see white screen when closing some windows apps like paint and notepad

    Ok, tried the DirectX DX9 version. Strangely I no longer get a window even open now.
    Will have to look into the creators update...

    I have seen the white screen too, but in a beginner's project that has become messed up a bit. If I build a new project, I do not get the white screen.
