A problem has hit users running Autograph following the recent upgrade to Windows 10 Anniversary Edition. The following error message comes up:
The program can't start because ext-ms-win-gdi-desktop-l1- 1-1-0.DLL is missing from your computer.
It seems that in this upgrade Microsoft have inadvertently removed a DLL that some applications require. No doubt this will be fixed in a subsequent update, but in the meantime please download and unzip this 'dummy' DLL.
Assuming you are a single user and not running from a network install, this is relatively easy to install. Simply copy the downloaded DLL into your Autograph folder. This is generally located at: C:\Program Files (x86)\Autograph 3.3
This should resolve this problem. Some users find that this is not enough. If Autograph is still not running, please download and unzip this Autograph Registry Update. Double-click on both (unless you know if you are 32- or 64-bit) - be brave, and allow these files to make changes - this is quite harmless. Any further problems: Email support
