Unhandled Exception (0xC0000005) while trying to launch Affinity Designer Trail

Recommended Posts

Hi, i have just downloaded the Affinity Designer Trial for windows.


The installation worked correctly but when i launch the program i am given the provided error. I am running fully updated windows 10 Pro 64-bit. I also get the same error when i try to launch the Affinity Photo windows trail. Any help and suggestions would be appreciated.


[EDIT: SOLVED]: I followed a users suggestion in this thread




 regarding using RivaTuner Statistics Server. I opened it and turned application detection level from low to None and affinity designer launched right away. I hope this helps someone with the same problem as me

Hi Hulio_2271,


Welcome to the Affinity Forums!

RivaTuner is a known program that causes interference with our Software. However I'm glad you've found a workaround - I wasn't actually aware you could do that with RivaTuner so that's really useful. 

Thanks for letting us know and hope you enjoy the trial!
