I work for a design agency that uses the Adobe CC suite (mainly Illustrator, Photoshop, InDesign). With the constant increase in pricing and changes in membership from Adobe we are ready to "cut the cord". The Affinity product offerings look like they would be a great alternative. I would like to install and test the trial, starting with Illustrator alternative Designer. But the trial install won't work. Some weeks ago I installed it but didn't get the opportunity to test the product before the trial ran out. Business is slow right now and this gives me a great opportunity to reinstall and try it out. If the product meets our needs, we will convert all the desktops to Affinity software. I was told by Affinity to wait until the 1.7.1 update came out last week which should allow for trial reinstall. I've done this and still cannot re-run the trial.
Here is what I've done: Uninstalled the original Affinity Designer - Downloaded and reinstalled Affinity Designer 1.7 - Got a message stating the trial had expired - Uninstalled Designer 1.7 - Installed 1.7.1 - Got the same message about expired trial.
How can I install and run any of the Affinity product's under the trial after having installed them previously?
