  1. I downloaded a newer update I was notified of and every time I tried, it fails. I uninstalled completely the older, WORKING, version of both Designer and Photo, and both keep failing install. I deleted the updated exe files, downloaded them again, still failing to install. I'm getting very frustrated because I just want to use my programs and design something already! Any help is very much appreciated! Thank you.
  2. I have a small question regarding the install method used for Affinity Photo. I noticed it's available though the Microsoft store on Windows 10, and I'm considering a purchase soon. I'm wondering, however, if I would be able to later install the software though the download process on a different computer (still windows), but not through the Microsoft store. I hope this makes sense. Thanks for any information.
  3. Good morning, I have tried to install the new version of Affinity Photo (1.7.1.). Unfortunately, the only option / button I get is "Update" (see screenshot) although I cannot find any Affinity Photo software, version, etc on the computer. As soon as I click "Update", another window pops up, saying that there is an "Invalid Path". I cannot install the programm. I have changed a hard disk about a year ago due to technical issues but have uninstalled all old software. How can I do a new, fresh, clean installation? Thanks in advance for any advices!!!
  4. I am attempting to download Affinity Designer 1.7.1 (from 1.6.5). I keep getting an error message. I am running OS X Sierra 10.12.6 on an iMac 2.7GHz. Is this a problem?
  5. Hi, I'm D and I seem to be having a problem installing Affinity Publisher despite purchasing it a few days ago for preoder. Before this I have downloaded the Adobe Publisher Beta and now that I try to setup the software it said it's failed? Someone please help me, I need to do my portfolio quick
  6. I'm posting this should anyone face the same issue of the installer failing due to being unable to access the \Affinity\Photo folder. When upgrading to and again just now to the installation failed because even I, as a windows 10 administrator, could not access (view contents or delete) the \Affinity\Photo folder. I could not take control of the folder and the first time spent a few hours finding what appeared to be an operating system issue and found an unexpected solution: by sharing the \Affinity\ folder as owner and rebooting, I could delete both folders and successfully install Photo. (note: this has been the only folder group I have ever had this issue with as far back as Windows1.1 ;-)
  7. Latest version of Affinity designer installation keeps failing. Only one topic here addresses such similar case, in which a solution is to do a clean reboot. Wich won't cut it, in my case. As I attempt installation, by pressing "update" in the setup/installation-wizard window. It will say "preparing" and some loading bar will fill up real quick, when full or almost full, it'll simply & plainly display a "failed" in the window. This happens when I try and install the latest version, I already have affinity designer installed. Is that mabey the problem? I just don't want to find myself in a situation where I have uninstalled affinity designer and still it won't work...like me if it won't ha ha. I'm running it in Windows 8.1
  8. For those of us who have been testing the beta, when we receive the 1.7 version on Wednesday, how should we install it on Windows? I.e. do we do an uninstall of the beta followed by an install of 1.7; or, do we just install 1.7 over the top of the beta??
  9. Hello, I downloaded Affinity Photo 1.7 on Windows 10 64 bits. I got the following message quite immediately after launching the installation package: failure of the installation. Then I removed Version 1.6.5 and tried again, I got the same message. I then tried reinstalling version 1.6.5 but it failed again with the same message. I tried installing with option admin, no success. I looked for solutions on forum and tried many of them, again without success. Now I don't have Photo installed on my computer. Could you help me? Best regards. Pascal
  10. Hello there! Yesterday I downloaded the long awaited 1.7 update for Affinity products. However I immediately encountered installation issues. I get the following error: I have tried all the tips mentioned in the sticky: and the general tips for this type of issues on: https://www.minitool.com/backup-tips/this-app-cannot-run-on-pc.html as well as: https://www.drivereasy.com/knowledge/this-app-cant-run-on-your-pc-solved/#m1 I've tried running in administrator mode, white listing and shutting off SmartScreen. So far none of the suggestions have helped. I'm running: Windows 10 Enterprise 1809 64 bit version (17763.503) Please help me install the new version. Best regards Andréas
  11. Hello, I just bought my first brush pack in the Affinity store. I could easily install them in Affinity Designer, but it doesn't work in Affinity photo (desktop for Windows). When i import them, i have a message saying they've been added (as i did this multiple times, it say the name is *brush pack 2, brush pack 3* and so on), but they don't show in my brush panel. I tried to create a new category first but it didn't work either. I would like to find the location folder on Windows to uninstall all those packs that didn't work and find a way for it to work ! Thanks a lot in advance for your help, joujou_tdj
  12. For some days Designer files (.afdesign) have been trying [and failing] to load in Affinity Photo; since I can go around it just dropping them into Designer's Dock icon, I really didn't care that much, today I also got this: I mumbled something to myself and try to reset associations but instead they don't set, when I click to change for all files I get a QuickLook thing instead: I'm selecting Affinity Designer, of course, not QuickLook, I don't even know where that is. I think it must be a macOS thing since I don't remember having updated Designer recently, in fact I checked updates explicitly for Designer and they weren't any and macOS on the other hand is getting pretty sneaky with automatic crap. I'm going back to High Sierra but I haven't finished setting up a syncing solution to replace iClouds. What could I do to fix associations while I get ready to downgrade?
  13. Hi, The title says it all. Please add your installation files to the Chocolatey package manager for Windows . So that I can further optimize and automate my software update processes. Affinity Photo and Designer are one of the last tools on my computer that need to be updated manually. Best regards
  14. I re-installed Affinity Designer after formatting my laptop, and while all my other softwares run just like earlier, Affinity Designer stubbornly won't run. I have tried uninstalling, re-installing, re-installing on a different drive, clearing all registry files before an installation, installing an older setup file, but nothing will work. Everytime I double click on the Affinity Designer icon, I get the error as in the attached image. Please resolve this. As a free-lancer, I trust and depend a lot on Affinity. Cheers, Shashank :)
  15. Hi, We want to install the software automatically to our business users. Where does Affinity Photo for Windows store the language setting which is set via Edit / Preferences / General / Language ?

  17. Purchased Affinity Photo (v. and tried to install on my Windows 10 Pro (64-bit) laptop. Nothing happens. If I try to install with administrator rights, I do get a dialog box asking if I want to proceed to allow the application to make changes to the system. I click yes, but again nothing more happens. I've looked through the forums but was unable to locate a solution. To be sure, I've downloaded the application twice, and tried starting my computer, but same result. Any assistance would be appreciated.
  18. Hi Everybody, I've just downloaded the trial version for Affinity Photo. But installation fails with an error message telling the Platform Update for Windows 7 is not found. Followed the link, downloaded the patches from Microsoft, but when running these, got messages telling the patches are not needed on my machine! (both 32bits and 64bits). Upgraded .NET to 1.6.2 without problems. Disabled antivirus. Still installation fails. System: Windows Home Premium Ed. 64 bits SP1 - Intel i5 - Mem 8Go Any help would be greatly appreciated.

  21. Good Morning I'm loving Affinity Photo and I'm actually getting my head around it, despite never having used a graphics program before, which is great. Thanks for making is useful for us Windows users:-) I am trying to install Photo on my second laptop [I checked the forums and found I can do this], but I keep getting an error message at the end. I've got no idea what it might mean. I've attached a copy of the message below. Can someone please help me to successfully load the program. Thanks in advance Cheers Robyn
  22. Hello! I have been having some issues with Affinity Designer lately and wanted to reinstall the software. Can I just uninstall like normal or do I have to unregister the software before uninstalling to be able to reinstall it? Thanks
  23. Hi guys. I'm using at the moment Photoshop 5 and testing Affinity 1.6 for Windows. Looks very good and seriously an alternative to Photoshop, because I hate the subscription model of Adobe. However, my question is more the following. Is it possible to use Affinity either on my laptop or on my desktop when I buy one licence? Meaning, can I install it on both instance and use it either/or? I’m using Windows 10 64bit with an Acer Power Desctop 16MB RAM and a Asus Power Desctop 16MB RAM. Thanks for a quick info
  24. First and foremost, Hello! Happy to be here with all of you, and I look forward to being part of this community! I know there are alot of installation posts on this forum, but I could not find an answer to my issue. I currently am running windows 64 bit, with all drivers, updates, and software up to date including direct x. When trying to install affinity photo my installation hangs up on the starting screen : I have tried restarting the program only to get the previous setup bug so I had to clean out windows temp and windows temp installer and try again. I also re downloaded the file and such. Can anyone help with ideas other then disabling antivirus (also already done)
  25. OK, first I am trying to install Affinity Photo 1.6 on my Dell Inspiron 17, with 8Gb of RAM, more than 400mg free on my hard drive and Windows 7 SP1 64bit. I had trouble with upgrading from 1.5to 1.53, but eventually managed it. However, I then tried upgrading to 1.6.089 and it wouldn't start. So I went to uninstall it and it said there wasn't a Windows uninstaller present and ended. So I figured to try and reinstall 1.53, but it says there is a newer version on my computer and exits. So I manually get rid of everything I could find on my system, went through the entire registry and cleaned out everything to do with Affinity Photo and tried again. Nothing. Can't install 1.6 because it isn't a Windows installation program and can't install 1.53 as it still says there is a newer version on my machine. I really want to like this program and get it installed. It would be a great bitmap editor for my ACDSee Professional Photo 2018, but I can't unless I can get it installed and running. Any help really would be appreciated. Richard M. Poniarski
