Graal Editor Windows 10

Is there a way for the editor to work on Windows 10?

Due to changes Microsoft made to system files compatibility between GraalEditor.exe and Windows 10 was broken.

After some playing around I found it was possible to work-around the changes and stop GraalEditor from loading the wrong DLLs (d2d1.dll, d3d11.dll, iertutil.dll) which cause the crash on startup and issues with the file dialogs/browser.

I've improved on my original fix and created an AutoIT script and wrapper exe that does the process much more seamlessly.

Install Instructions:

1. Download GraalEditorW10.zip
2. Extract GraalEditorW10.exe to your Graal folder
3. Right-click GraalEditorW10.exe and Run As Administrator
4. Select your GraalEditor.exe when prompted
5. Click OK to the prompt indicating changes were made to system files

After installing you no longer need to run GraalEditorW10.exe as an Administrator unless it refuses to work properly.

Open With Configuration Instructions:

1. Right-click a level file.
2. Open With > Choose more apps
3. Check the box indicating to always open with this app
4. Select 'more apps' and scroll down to the bottom
5. Choose another app and find and select GraalEditorW10.exe

How it works:

1. GraalEditorW10.exe is an exe wrapper for an AutoIT script below
2. Checks and adjusts permissions of system files so they can't be accessed before editor is started
3. Kicks off the process to start the editor
4. Waits for the editor to close
5. Adjusts permissions back to allow other applications to access them

The issue with this method is that it will cause certain programs like Skype (will crash on open) and internet programs to have difficulties with downloads. Closing the editor will undo the fix and allow the application to work. You can work-around this behavior by using a second user account if you intend to work on a level for quite some time.

If any future Windows updates make changes to the specified system files, you refresh/reinstall, or if you move your Graal folder to a different computer just re-install the fix by running it as an Administrator.

When all done correctly you should see this:

I was just using Graal2.2, which was always the best version anyway. I noticed that RC2 only works if I open it inside of an archive, which is odd.
