Important: ARM 64 bit Support

Recommended Posts

Hello Guys,

please release an ARM64 Bit Version of Affinity Photo for the Microsoft Store. 

You only accept INTEL and AMD.

I have an ASUS with Qualcomm Snapdragon and Windows 10 Pro. The future of Mobile Chips are here!

thank You!

Agreed. My new Surface Pro X (based on Snapdragon 8cx) is amazing. and will become my new daily driver. Also, Adobe is working on bringing a bunch of products to the the native 64bit ARM world: 

Thanks!

This has been discussed on other threads.  The Windows version of the Affinity products are built using a toolkit from Microsoft which is not supported (by Microsoft) on ARM64, such that Serif would basically need to rewrite the application to get this working.  They have indicated that they are evaluating options, but due to this limitation, I would not expect that version to be released any time soon, as it is not a simple matter of a recompile; this will take a lot of work.

However, another topic linked to a Microsoft discussion which seemed to indicate that Microsoft is also looking at reworking the interfaces in a way that would resolve this problem. Still, I agree that it probably won't appear in an Affinity release soon.

Again, not something that will happen in the short term.
