Unable to export to x3g file format

Looking for some help, just installed and setup MatterControl 2.0 (184.108.40.20617) for Windows 10 to be used with my Makerbot clone CTC Bizer using sailfish 7.6. Unfortunately each time i slice and try to export it as .x3g it instead exports as ._gcode. I'm I just being silly and missing something or is there a problem I'm not seeing.
Any help is greatly appreciated.

I just tried setting up a CTC Bizer in build 220.127.116.1117 and it seems to be working as expected. I saved the export file to my downloads folder. It may be that the confusion is it generates both a ._gcode file and an .x3g file.
Do you by chance see both files?
Hope this helps.
If not we will definitely investigate further.

Hi there @LarsBrubaker,
I also have this same issue and have been trawling the forums to see if I can find a fix, though alas, it seems only a few people have been having this issue.
I downloaded MatterControl 2.0 a few days ago and began messing around with dual colour prints, exporting as .X3G for my CTC Bizer, however it has recently began to only export ._gcode files. I've tried numerous times to fix this issue by:
-Creating a new printer profile,
-Uninstalling and reinstalling MatterControl,
-Switching to the Alpha version from Stable,
-Even manually cleaning my registry of MatterControl files.
I noticed that my software still seems to save my preferences and profiles however, even after registry cleaning and instillation, which makes it difficult to diagnose whether it's a corrupted file or not. Could you perhaps guide me on how to do that?
The only thing I can think that may have triggered this behaviour is attempting to export a sliced file to .X3G that wasn't placed on the bed properly. I was trying to test whether MatterControl was using my Z axis correctly and attempted to slice something floating 10mm above the bed, however this didn't produce a .X3G file and the software never has since.
Edit: I should note I am running on Windows 7, not Windows 10.
