I have been watching this discussion about MSI installers for a few weeks now. I have used Affinity for various projects and have had no issues with this excellent software.
However, I recently started to develop an interest in creating cartoons using Cartoon Animator 5 and I was happy to learn that I could use Affinity to edit the characters that I create, until I realised there was this MSI issue.
As the deadline is approaching to get the introductory offer, I guess I am going to be forced to buy now. I just hope that all the promises will turn out to be true and that Affinity 2 will work well with CTA5.
