Affinity Publisher 1.8.5 new install starts with blank screen on 2H20

I installed Publisher 1.8.5 on Windows 10 with 2H20 update today. The splash screen appears but the next screen is blank and I can't continue with the first run. I attach a screenshot.

I guess it could be connected to the known issue listed here in the FAQs:
[KNOWN ISSUE] Affinity apps no longer start after installing the Windows 10 October 2020 (20H2) update - Frequently Asked Questions [FAQ] - Affinity | Forum (serif.com)

I also tried Affinity Publisher Beta - 1.9.0.874 but that behaves the same.

In that case I would check the other FAQ article about issues starting the Affinity programs:
