Affinity Designer will not open after being Downloded

Recommended Posts

Hello, I downloaded the 30 day free trial yesterday, and am unable to open it. It says "Windows Aero is not enabled. This will cause rendering problems and slow performance. Please select an Aero desktop theme for best results." I went in to the control panel, selected an Aero desktop theme, tried again, and it still was not working, so I restarted the computer, and haven't had any luck with that either. Please let me know if I'm doing something wrong. I would love to try it, and see if it will work for what I need. Thank you!

So you have installed it but it will not run?

This post will likely help you sort the no stop issue:

Alternatively, If you want to override the error message, you can use --no-dwm-warning on the command line. So, you would start Command Prompt and type: --no-dwm-warning and press enter.

Also, check in device manager to see if you have other display adapters like logimein, this was someones fix to this issue.

Note that it is a 10 day trial, beginning when you first open the app after installing it.

Please also note that the clock runs continuously, so you won’t get ten full days of use out of the product unless you can manage without any sleep during the trial period.

Hi @orthoprrep and Welcome to the Forums,

The advice from @firstdefence should get you up and running with Affinity :)

Actually there is a 30 day trial available for Corp and Education users :)
