  1. No, %appdata%etc is there but is empty. I have symlinks for both of my program files folders, so whenever some inconsiderate programmer installs software without asking (yes, that still happens in this century), it still goes to D:. But really, would it kill Serif to pop up a simple save-file window that comes with Windows and has come since Windows was running under MS DOS?
  2. Alas, Windows refuses to move the Appdata folder. And yes, I tried it, but the instructions do not work. Even if it did, no software should just download anything without first asking where to save it to. No, I did not see a blue progress bar. I just bought it two days ago, from the Affinity web site. I will test and see if I can live with the annoyance. Since there are only two sample files, I will just live without them. But I would strongly urge Serif programmers not to decide where to download files without asking. I only have 20 GB of free space on drive C: precisely because so many programmers act without asking. I am a programmer myself (started back in 1965), so I do know what I am talking about.
  3. And now, it suddenly popped this up: And that makes no sense because all it showed me was what I showed above, clearly indicating an error. It has not asked me where to save it to, either. I surely hope it does not presume I want it saved somewhere in my C: drive, because if so, I want a full refund. Any software that assumes it is OK to clutter my system disk is produced by a bunch of incompetents.
  4. A link? Where? I don’t see any link. If I click on a sample (there are two), it pops up a little cloud with a red x in the middle. If I click on it again, the pop-up disappears, but I certainly see no link to download the sample(s). Here is what it looks like at first: And here it is after I click on the Lifestyle Magazine thing: And if I click on that, it just goes back to what it looked like at first. So, how do I download a sample (and where does it save it at)?
  5. Then how about giving us the link to the videos on Vimeo instead of just hiding it in your own player (which, I am sorry to say, is horrible)?
  6. Yes, thank you. Before I only turned windows Update on and that did not help. but after you asked again, I also turned Windows Module Installer and that worked. After that I turned both off (having them on causes some problems on my system) but I was able to update Designer and it is working.
  7. OK, thanks, it was the Modules Installer. With it enbaled, I was able install .net 4.8, and then Designer 1.7.0. Thanks, everyone.
  8. I guess I’ll just have to stick with Designer 1.6. I just wish there was a way to turn off the upgrade notifications.
  9. That’s what it said. I just copied and pasted the whole thing.

  11. OK, I tried to install .net 4.7.2 manually. That failed, too.

  12. Windows 10 Home, version 1607, build 14393.953.
  13. Tried to upgrade Affinity Designer from 1.6.5.135 under Windows 10 to 1.7.0. It tried to install .net, which failed saying a parameter was wrong (did not say which parameter). It wouldn’t even bother me that much if the old Designer stopped popping up the message asking me if I want to download the upgrade. So, what now?
