Topic Subject: Running Editor in Windows 10

I have tried everything I can think of to resolve this issue, but here's what happens.

I start the editor (in compatability mode XPsp3), the gui appears, but no matter what I try, I cannot get anything else to appear. Where the map should be is simply a black box.

Am I doing something wrong, or has Windows 10 made the editor unworkable?

Thank you.

Hi Tom, I don't have Win10 so I can't assist, but I've moved your post to the Technical Forum where others can help.

To those who can help: He's talking about the Campaign Creator software for the game Emperor: Rise of the Middle Kingdom.

I've just tried loading the Editor (EmperorEdit.exe) on Win10 Pro 64-bit and as far as I can see there were no problems besides a little bit of flickering. I'm using the original fully patched version of the game and I am not using compatibility mode.

My current system is:

Win10 Pro 64-bit (upgraded from Win 7 Ultimate 64-bit)
i7 3930K
16GB RAM 1866Mhz
980Ti (factory OC'ed)
Running from a SSD.

I have not OC'ed anything myself.

Note that as Win10 is upgraded (installed on top) from Win7 Ultimate 64-bit the game was originally installed under Win7 Ultimate 64-bit. I have no idea if that might make a difference. If you have the original CD you could try install DirectX from it as it might contain a directx file that Microsoft does not supply with the current release of DirectX.

Works for me. Win10 64bit preloaded machine(I5).

I use compatibility mode Win98(both Emperor.exe and EmperorEdit.exe) so they stays on 1 processor(0). Non-UAC(no admin requirement). I have Emperor setup for 'Windowed Mode' and adjust Editor for largest window size which is less then vertical desktop size(1600x900).
- I use "PlayIntroMovie=no" as the last line of 'Emperor.ini'.
Common checksemperor version
1. should be installed in c:sierra/ not under 'Program Files'. Not normally an issue with Win10, but should be checked.
2. tried to restart(or a shutdown since installing Emperor).
3. tried using 'EmperorEdit.exe' rather then Campaign Creator Button in 'Emperor.exe'.
4. tried without no-CD or widescreen versions.
