Is this a known occurrance?

I occasionally receive this error: "Error restoring device context"

I'm not sure what is causing it. I set the "Compatibility Mode" and "Run as Administrator" but still get this error.

Running Most current HTML Editor under Windows 10 using HP Envy lap top.

I upgraded from Win 7 to Win 10 by installing over the top. I get that error now. Also the app is very slow to install.

Not really causing a problem.

You're right there, when I get the error, I click on "OK" and continue to code. It's just a little bit disconcerting is all.

I get the same exact 'error' message today, Oct., 2022, which behaves on my Dell G5 WIN 10 computer exactly as it did for rhubarb67 in 2016. It is a nuisance and I would like to stop it from recurring. For me it appeared at the same time I purchased, installed and ran 'CCleaner'. I do not know for certain whether there's any relevance there? It's all I can put my finger on. I've since deleted CCleaner and downloaded and installed the latest vs. of Coffeecup HTML editor to no avail? I do not want to mess with restoring to a previous setup lest I do more harm than good. Please advise on how to rid the editor of this nuisance. Thank you.

I think I'd ask CC support about this https://www.coffeecup.com/help/myroom/
It seems to be an old issue, and during the years since it was first raised, we've heard nothing.
