Install Designer without msix


Recommended Posts

Hello, is it possible to install the designer without the msix file? My laptop has windows 8.5 and can't unzip the file with msix. Are there zip files to install possible?

Designer version 2 only runs on Windows 10 or later.

@Stef16 Affinity programs version 2 do not work with Windows 8.1. Neither as MSI/Exe nor as MSIX.

Yes, but the OP is trying to install V2. And unless they already own V1, they won't be able to install it.

Where can I find version 1

 

If you don't already own it, you can't. It is no longer for sale.

If you do already own it, you can find it in the Store you purchased it from (Affinity Store, or Microsoft Store) in your account there.

I have the V1+V2 for Mac but I need it for a short time on a windows pc. in my account I just see the Mac version

V1 apps were OS-dependent — separate purchases for Mac and Windows. If you didn’t purchase the V1 Windows app, it’s unfortunately no longer possible to buy it.

With V2, the Universal License enables installation on Mac, Windows, and iPad.
