Is anyone else having an issue with ER/Studio 17 running on Windows 10? It will launch, but then has very limited functionality with errors like "Failed to create empty document". We have found that having admin rights resolves the issue, but that's not an ideal solution.We have a case open with Idera, but wanted to see if others had this issue.
I may be a bit biased, but I haven't had any issues running ER/Studio 17 on Windows 10. I've installed this a few times on a few different machines and they all work fine. I've also worked with many users who have no problems as well. I do know though, that I've ran into a handful of users who've run into the same issue as you and have resolved it the same way. I do not know the cause of it, but it looks like it could be permission related.
When you installed Data Architect, did you have Administrator rights and "Run As Administrator"? This typically prevents what you are running into. I found this in the documentation:
IMPORTANT INSTALLATION NOTES
It is installed with “Run as Administrator”
