[RESOLVED] P3Dv3.4.22 Error creating child window

Hi.
After a major hardware upgrade I'm re-installing P3Dv3.4.22.19868 on a completely new installed Win10 system.
Apart from a once message "unable to run P3D", which came only once, there's a persisting error message:
Each time when my aircraft crashes (I'm still in the phase of installing, so I don't take care about 'flight safety') I get the message "Error creating child window" with a bling-bling from Win10. OK-buttoning it away opens the crash site view within P3D.
Is there a solution to this?

My (new) hardware specs are:
be quiet! Dark Power pro BQT P9-850W
ASUS ROG Maximus X Hero
Intel Core i7-8700K, 6x 3.70GHz @ 3.70GHz
Corsair Vengeance LPX Kit 32GB, DDR4-4133, CL19-25-25-45
ASUS ROG Strix GeForce GTX 1080

nota bene: this is on a pristine Installation of P3Dv3, the only addon yet installed is FSUIPC (but the mentioned error message came even before that.

EDIT:

Unfortunately, the "P3D is unable to continue, the program is being stopped" message now is obligatory, even when starting P3D as administrator I can't continue...

Michael.

Ok, the issue with stopping P3D is solved, must be some settings in prepar3d.com.
Deleting this file revived P3D.
Remains the "child window" error...

Everything ok now,
both reported problems were obviously caused by a Win10 OS, which had not yet finished all its updates.
Everything's fine now.
