Affinity Photo/Designer won't start

Recommended Posts



I have installed Photo and Designer on a windows server 2012 R2 running under Vmware Horizon Client.


I can see the application in task manager and then it just disappears (silently). There are no entries in the logs and no crash reports


The server has 4gb RAM and around 2gb available


I must add that the apps initialy did run. I had to update a visual studio 2013 update which did update some .net runtime components. and affinity stopped working after that I believe. 


I uninstalled and reinstalled Affinity photo based on some forum feedback but that did not resolve the issue.


any suggestions?


Thanks for the help

Hi jp_semery


Sounds like it could be something with the .NET framework. Could you try grabbing the latest .NET version (4.7.2 I think it is) and  trying installing that to see if it resolves the issue at all for you?
