Long shot, but a trick that worked for others, move a copy of the file 'options.xml' from a working copy of GR to the root directory of the non-functioning copy. This sounds like an error due to forced resolution being too small by default when first running & creating that file. Stretch, but other than time spent, does no harm to try.

This might have more to do with the graphics card drivers then the windows version. 

Most recent drivers don't really work well anymore with DirectX 8 which is the version GR requires. So you'll need something that exposes DirectX 8 functions while still working with your graphics card.

I just created a topic on running GR on Windows 10 with great graphics and audio. You might want to check it out:
