I also encountered few problems after installing new apps, like lack of shortcuts for example, or difficulties to add .exe files to other programs. The solution that might work for all of you is: download msix file of your desired program, extract it (unzip it) to a folder using 7-zip, go to that folder, your .exe file should be located in App subfolder. Run the program like you would normally. It did work for me. I was able to place that folder to any directory, create shortcuts and connect external programs to use Affinity. I tried this and it works, thanks. I use V1 and I'm evaluating V2 on 30 day trial. To be honest cost is not a factor in deciding if I'll move to V2. However integration is absolutely critical and the inability to call V2 from DXO etc means I'd not bother to use V2 even if it were a free upgrade. If this work around is a one-off then I'm OK, but if it is required every time there is an upgrade I cannot live with that either. So, I'll wait and see if the matter is addressed in the course of my trial period, or at least an update is released and proves I do not have to keep repeating the work around. I really want to continue with Affinity, for many reasons I wish them lots of success and I'm very happy to spend my money with them. I'm just so surprised that they've taken this miss-step with V2. Here's hoping they respond rapidly to our feedback. PattiR and jpmb76 1 1 Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
