Fix startup crash caused by August Win 10 update
Grrrrr Microsoft! The August Win 10 cumulutive security update contains a serious regression that breaks the oleaut32 system library: https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/release-information/status-windows-10-1903#629msgdesc https://answers.microsoft.com/en-us/msoffice/forum/all/windows-update-2019-08-cumulative-update-has/baeea089-9bba-4a2a-9660-0a220f1656e9?auth=1&page=1 PhotoDemon uses this library. This is a problem with Microsoft, not me (or the dozens of other developers who have reported this issue) so I don't have an ETA. In the meantime, I can at least coax PhotoDemon into starting by manually working around the bug in critical codepaths. I do not have the time to investigate every conceivable place where this issue could bite, but this quick-fix should at least make nightly builds usable again.
