I tested the game I created on 4 computers (ALL Windows 7) and had the following problem at installation time.

The shortcut created by the installer itself came like this:

When I click the following message appears:

Clicking in search appears this:

By clicking the application Bet on Man the shortcut would work correctly. However, not that the players have that task.

  • \$\begingroup\$ If you right-click the shortcut and choose "properties" there should be a section there, in one of the tabs, that shows you the path the shortcut is attempting to point to. This likely differs from "Usuarios/Oczul/Bet on Man/Bet on Man.exe" -- it would be useful to know what path the shortcut's trying to use. It sounds like it thinks the name of the executable is literally "${BET ON MAN}.exe" which sounds like a problem in the substitution of some variable somewhere. \$\endgroup\$

    \$\begingroup\$ @Boneco Sinforoso When you click "Create Application" the file save dialog lets you choose the type of the file Game maker will create. There you select "single runtime executable" \$\endgroup\$

With the help of Dmi7ry and Juanpa who commented on my question, I was able to solve this problem.

When creating an application, just switch from Windows NSIS Installer to Single runtime executable:
