Edgegdi.dll error

I have a message that says "The code execution cannot proceed because edgegdi.dll was not found. Reinstalling the program may fix this problem." This so far has only affected one of my programs as far as I can tell.

I have the same issue with Final Draft 9.

I open the program, get this error. My computer freezes and I have to manually turn it off (can't use keyboard at all).

I emailed their support team and received this response: (spoiler alert, I tried it all and had no luck so I still can't open FD9) (I had an additional error trying to repair the program hence the additional steps)

"First, the edgedii.dll error is separate from your software freezing. That error message is due to a Windows 10 update and our Engineering team is currently consulting with Microsoft on how to remove that association from our program.

As for your software freezing and giving your Error 1721, this Windows OS error indicates that you will need to follow these steps to install FD9 as an administrator to try to override the error: 

1. Download the FD9 installer: http://www.finaldraft.com/support/install-final-draft/install-final-draft-9-windows

2. Open the finaldraft912Win.zip file that downloaded, revealing the Final Draft.exe application file;

3. Drag the Final Draft application file onto the Desktop;

4. Right-click on this Final Draft file on the Desktop and select Run as Administrator;

5. Proceed through the installation as prompted."

I click ok and it opens up and functions with no other issues... I don't know what to do about the message itself tho.

You can actually work around the error by going to the directory C:\Windows\SysWOW64 and copying any dll (to the same directory) - I chose EdgeManager.dll -  and rename the copy to edgegdi.dll

Now when you launch FinalDraft there'll be no error.

Hey JuanRodrigues67,

_AW_'s post resolved the issue for me in Calyx Point.

I made a copy of EdgeManager.dll, then renamed it to edgegdi.dll.

Because I'm currently running an older version, I then copied the edgegdi.dll file to BOTH System32 AND  SysWOW64.  Closed Point. Reopened. No error!
