Author Topic: Engine crash upon installing new version of ags  (Read 519 times)

Downloaded a fresh copy of AGS from the main page tried to create a game on first save and start I ended up with a message that said something along the lines as the game engine appears to not have shut down properly.
I even started a blank game and did not do anything but try to run the demo game and same thing happens.

Code: Adventure Game Studio

"The operation was canceled by the user" - usually means that another software interrupted AGS, an anitivirus, Windows Defender, and similar tools may cause this.
