  1. Is anyone else having issues installing the latest versions (1.9.1) of Photo, Designer or Publisher on Windows10? Most recently, in the last three weeks or so, everytime I try to install program or app updates, Windows notifies me via a pop-up dialogue box, that "It's time to update your device". With a little research, it appears it is part of Microsoft's initiative of "S Mode", a stricter enforcement of security. S Mode apparently requires one (a) to use the Microsoft Store for installable items; and, (b) Limits Windows10 to the use of MS Edge (browser) and Bing Maps. In my case, I am able to use any map app and any other browser I've chosen; so if this is supposedly an enforcement of S Mode, actual implementation of S Mode (assuming that's the case since I cannot confirm it so) on my workstation (Win10 Pro, version 10.0.15063 build 15063) is inconsistent at best. I say I cannot confirm it because when I click on the "See how" link in the aforementioned pop-up, I get another pop-up, which states, "Your device is not running in S mode. Very confusing: If it's not in S mode, why is it asking me to update my system? I did go ahead and update Windows the first time I encountered this issue, and it is a suspect of causality for me. (I've begun uninstalling updates, one at a time, to see if there is any reversal of this chain of pop-ups.) So far, no reversals. I've spent hours on this issue (just wanting to update my three Affinity programs), but with what appears to be Microsoft's alienation to adequate support, I'm at a loss.d Any input from anyone? Any links to answers or options proven to be successful? Thanks in advance.
