I have just downloaded the trial version of Affinity Designer. Whenever installing it says Setup Failed.

I have the up to date version of .net

When I search in the SetupUI this is what I get: 

Startup: 6/24/2020 9:00:35 AM
OS version: 10.0.18362
ProductName: Designer
ProductType: Retail
Opening HKLM...
Opening registry key: 'SOFTWARE\Serif\Affinity\Designer\1'...
Getting ProgramW6432 environment variable...
Install path not found, using default: C:\Program Files\Affinity\Designer
Opening MSI database: Affinity.msi
Opening database view: SELECT `Value` FROM `Property` WHERE `Property`='ProductVersion'

Can you help me work out why setup is failing?

Welcome to the forum Rose1 :)

Can you try restarting your machine and then try reinstalling the app again? If you continue to get the Setup Failed message, please attach your setup log to this thread.
