Here is a list of known issues with third party software: Capture One (Windows Explorer Integration) Problem: Crash when attempting to open files (stack overflow in NVIDIA driver). Affects Capture One versions 20 and 21. Cause: Capture One's Explorer integration crashes if more than one instance is running at once Solution: Disable Windows Explorer Integration by renaming the C:\Program Files\Capture One\Capture One 20\WIC\WIC64 folder to something else. Note: If you have version 21, the directory will be C:\Program Files\Capture One\Capture One 21\WIC\WIC64. This assumes you haven't changed the default installation directory. https://support.captureone.com/hc/en-us/community/posts/360013132497-CO-20-Windows-explorer-integration ASUS Sonic / ASUS GPU Tweak III / MSI Nahimic Problem: User Interface elements can disappear or appear stretched Cause: ASUS Sonic / ASUS GPU Tweak III / MSI Nahimic interferes with Direct3D9 renderering. Detection: Check if Nahimic is running as an active Windows Service. Kill the service and see if the problem temporarily stops Solution: Start the application with --no-hw-ui flag, or stop the software (this won't affect the driver or functionality of the sound card) https://forum.affinity.serif.com/index.php?/topic/49247-16089-issues-tabs-vanishing/&do=findComment&comment=249809 User Provided solution (not verified by our developers): https://forum.affinity.serif.com/index.php?/topic/147155-ui-elements-disappearing-on-hover-publisher-19-110/&do=findComment&comment=822640 Topaz OFD (Brazilian Banking Software) Problem: Applications won't start Cause: Unknown Solution: Uninstall Topaz OFD https://forum.affinity.serif.com/index.php?/topic/148321-the-software-doesnt-start-at-all/&do=findComment&comment=827774 Brother Control Centre 4 Problem: Unable to update the Affinity applications (Setup Failed).

One user has suggested using FancyZones as Part of the Microsoft PowerToys project. https://forum.affinity.serif.com/index.php?/topic/125632-all-affinity-programms-are-black-nvidia-surround/ RivaTuner Problem: Instant crash at application start Cause: RivaTuner hooks into Direct3D libraries and injects its own code, which causes the crash (neither Serif or Microsoft are at fault) Solution: 1.6.x.x attempts to catch the corruption, and offers a slower, software-only fallback (with a warning at startup). Alternatively you can tell RivaTuner to ignore the Affinity executables (also add help.exe and crashreport.exe) by adding them to the list and setting 'Application detection level' to 'None'.
