Cannot EXIT Affinity Photo

Recommended Posts

Whenever I finish a session and want to exit, I get a notice that says:

QUITTING

At least one file is currently being opened. Please wait for files to load before quitting the application.

In order to close the program, I have had to use CTRL-ALT-DEL [Task Manager] and choose End Task.

I have uninstalled/reinstalled Affinity at least 3 times, hoping that a clean install might resolve my problem. I am using version 1.6.4.104.

I am attempting to load the DxO 2018 NIK Collection, and one of the steps requires a RESTART after a change in Preferences. It is at that point I get the notice about the problem with QUITTING.

Thinking about it...but had some issues with the installation process when I tried earlier. Will most likely do another attempt.

I have the exact same behaviour .. I have the issue that I cannot exit affinity because "at least one file is being opened"  for some time now. Today I also tried to install the NIK collection which didn't work.
After that I installed the update, which worked but the error is still there.

Actual version from affinity photo on my Windows PC is 1.6.5.123

I found the solution on my system, thanks to a good tipp in an affinity FB group.

Try to delete the corrupt temp files in the folder "%appdata%\Affinity\Photo\1.0\temp" while Affinity Photo is not running:

After that it should work properly and you can also install the NIK collection

Tegi,

I have looked through all the folders/files I can think of to find the location of the temp file you mention. I have had no success - perhaps you can expand your explanation to guide me to the correct location.

Per another suggestion I go on this forum, I upgrade my Affinity version to 1.6.5 - but still faced the same problem.

Hoping you can be of assistance.

Mark,

Did as you recommended, but still have the exact same issue - with exactly the same message.

Am trying not to get frustrated, as I am really excited about Affinity, but wish I could find the real path to being able to use the really useful DxO NIK Collection as a plugin.

Just read another post in the Designer forum, and somehow that clicked for me! I found the culprit file, deleted it, and all worked like a charm. I will try to attach the temp file for your perusal.
