Uninstall-Reinstall forcing me to Re-Purchase?!


Recommended Posts

Hello Affinity. I bought AD over 6 years ago, and more recently the other 2 apps in the suite. Because of some terrible issues with AD I was told by you all to uninistall-reinstall and when I went to my login to find my download link, the link to download Designer is gone, as well as Photo. This was not the case last year when I got this new Mac I have now. All three of my download links were there and I was able to successfully install them on it, but now 2 of them are gone, and now I'm at work... on the clock... with no Affinity Designer! Please respond with how to fix this as soon as possible, thank you!

If you purchased Designer 6 years ago, I'm pretty sure you must have purchased it from the Mac App Store as I believe it's only been available from the Affinity Store for 2 years or so. You would need to sign in to the Mac App Store using the same identity you used for the original purchase, and install from there. You can't get it from the Affinity Store.

Thanks Walt. Unfortunately I'm all logged in to the App Store and it also is demanding a re-purchase! This is just awful!

Have you ever used a different Apple ID? Or worked from a different region, with a different App Store?

Have you looked in the Purchased tab for the App Store?
