Where is v 2.1 installed?


Recommended Posts

Hi, and sorry that this is not a features question! Where, physically, is Designer 2.1 installed on my drives? I'm desperately short of space on my drive C, and while installing this version, I noted that it didn't give me an option as to where I wanted Designer installed. I assume it's drive C, my primary drive, but I cannot locate it!

Have I taken too many stupid pills, or is there a way to define the destination upon install and redirect it?


Manyh thanks in advance!

If you have been using the standard MSIX installers, then Windows has installed it in a very hidden folder without giving you any options. You might be able to tell Windows to Move it to a different drive, and that might work (or it might not).

You can also consider uninstalling it, and then downloading the EXE (MSI) installer from the Affinity Store website, which will give you a choice of where to install.

Note, too, that there is a significant amount of user data stored on C still, unless you also move that. And how you move that depends on whether you're using the MSIX or EXE version, once you have 2.1 (it was different in 2.0).

Hi, and thank you for how fast you replied. And I'm a little less sheepish seeing that I'm not the only one to ask about enabling a choice of install locations, based on using the msi installer.

But I don't see one available on the downloads page in my account. Am I looking in the wrong place?

TIA,

Gary

See at the bottom of the page where it says "-> Looking for Windows MSI installers? ":

See alternatively ...

... and there on each page always "Also available as EXE ..." ...
