New Windows = New Problems (HardCMP)

As always with a new Windows, there HAS to be some problem with FL or at least FL modding tools.
I upgraded my Windows 8.1 to Windows 10 (unfortunately and with lots of regret), and then this started happening:

Open in new window

(it should be black. also, it blinks.)
When I open a file, it crashes.
I guessed it is, most probably, a graphic card driver issue, and I tried running legacy drivers but it's no use.

I really don't know if anyone here still uses HardCMP. I haven't looked for new tools ever since I saved my mostly used ones on a could server, so I currently have no other tool to edit hardpoints other than manually placing them (which is extremely buggy with the export plugins I use [that are probably outdated])

So sorry for the spam, but can anyone update me with new tools and utilities if any?
In case there's no newer version, consider it a bug report.

Thanks!

You could try the hardpoint editor/viewer in UFT Editor.

Hard Point Editor and HardCMP are the same program.
I could use the UTF editor, though it doesn't give me visual feedback regarding hardpoint placement.

Somehow after a night of being off, it suddenly came to life and began working O.o
I really have no idea what I did. Probably some component that required a restart.

Anyways, problem solved. Sorry for spamming.

Compatibility mode?

EDIT: Whoops, that'll teach me for not reading properly.

You should still try to use UTF Editor instead. Seems like you haven't looked at it in the past few, oh, years, since it includes a full visual UI and far more advanced tools for setting up hardpoints than HardCMP.
