Launches into blank screen

Recommended Posts


I was on 1.6.x Designer, it was launching into a blank screen with only the ad/news box in the center. Then I upgraded to the latest 1.7.3 version and it's still doing the same thing. It appears that the app is running fine in the background, just not rendering/showing. I can still hover the cursor on different areas to show the tooltips. I am on surface pro 4 with all the latest windows updates installed.

I've tried launching both as admin and normal user as well.

Hi Sean P, yes the issue is solved by uninstalling duet display, thank you.

By the way, I did have the latest available version of both duet display and affinity designer at the time, and the driver for iris540 was up to date as well.

I only installed duet display recently but didn't think that would be causing the problem. Any chance in the future the two will work nicely together? I am fine with not using both apps together, but I had to uninstall duet display fully to allow AD to work.
