I'm trying to install Affinity V2 on Windows and it's failing with Error 0x80073CF3. Why?

If you're trying to install the Affinity Store or Microsoft Store version of Affinity on Windows and it's failing with the following reason:

Windows cannot install package ... because a different package ... with the same name is already installed. Remove package ... before installing. (0x80073cf3)

This indicates that there's already an existing version of the app installed. An example of this would be downloading and installing V2 directly from the Affinity Store and then trying to install Affinity V2 again directly from the Microsoft Store. You can go to Apps > Apps & features to see if you have an existing version installed.

Please Note: Because of this behavior it's not possible to have both the Affinity Store and Microsoft Store versions of Affinity V2 apps installed alongside each other on the same device.
