Hardlinks don't break if one of the links is deleted. :-\ I also thought that the hardlink function was set to do a file copy as a last resort, though obviously not.

Oh, they are like reference counted data... well, that explains why it cannot create hardlink for the file in C:/Program Files without admin permissions.
But does this mean that if I do something to Linux lib files inside one Compiled folder (e.g. corrupt them somehow), then it will have these changes applied for every other compiled game on disk, and even ones inside AGS Editor installation?

More importantly, this is not good that there are incosistent ways to deal with Windows and Linux files. Maybe use same operation for any file that has to be shared/copied from the Editor (acwin.exe, Linux libs, and so on)? Then at least we will have to deal with only one set of issues.

Did you try the installer version of 3.4, or did you use the 2 zip files? Maybe the installer helps? (though if your ags is in x86 that sounds like you used the installer)..
I used the installer.

Is anyone else having issues with saving sprites? An error with back-up sprite file. It comes and goes for no apparent reason, perhaps related to Win 10 updates or Avast antivirus???

It throws an error msg and freezes on the splash screen. Are there some files missing from that package? I can get that msg as well once I'm at my computer.

What is error text?
Make sure you have the latest version of the editor, found here: http://www.adventuregamestudio.co.uk/forums/index.php?topic=54118.0
Then copy the new exe over original installation.
