Windows 10 anniversary update fix now separately available

The Windows 10 anniversary update includes a newer version of msftedit.dll, which breaks hyperlink functionality in the text editor used by WYSIWYG Web Builder.
Until Microsoft fixes this issue we have created a workaround by installing the previously version of the DLL in the Program Files folder.

You can download the fix here:

Note that you should only install this if you have the Windows 10 anniversary update !!!

Install instructions:
1. Close WYSIWYG Web Builder and all other running applications.
2. Run the setup
3. Follow the instructions
Note: The setup was created for WB11, but it will also work with other versions. Just make sure you select the correct folder!

Hopefully Microsoft will soon fix the issues in the new version so we no longer need this workaround. A support request is pending, but unfortunately Microsoft has not replied yet...

*** UPDATE ***
It is no longer necessary to install this separate fix.
If you install version 11.2.3 then an automatic fix will be applied if needed. ... =1&t=73734

If you did install the 'Windows 10 anniversary update fix' then please uninstall it.
Either use the uninstall feature of Windows or manually remove msftedit.dll from the \Program Files\WYSIWYG Web Builder folder.

For previous versions of WWB, you will need to install the DLL in the program files folder of that version.
