this is a typical problem.

The problem you have is that the GIANTS Editor needs OpenGL whereas the game itself can switch to DirectX.
So, the actual issue is that your graphics card is a 'onboard card' which does not support all features which the Editor demands.

You could try to update your drivers, but without any guarantee that this helps.

Sorry for no better news.
