Hey all,

I installed the application Affinity Publisher Public Beta and application will not launch.

Steps:

  1. Install application on to Computer.
  2. Assign application to install on secondary hard drive.
  3. once application is complete, press and run Affinity Publisher Public Beta application short cut.

Result:

Doesn't start up when running application.

Additional Information:

I installed the application affinity folder where Affinity Design is located.

Restarting the computer did not resolve the issue.

AfPub-beta is running fine (notwithstanding any bugs still in the beta) on my Window 10 machine. Your problem might have to do with installing the app on a drive other than your primary (i.e. C drive) and in a folder other than what the installer would create.

Windows 10
Intel(R) Core(TM) i7-4720HQ CPU @ 2.60GHZ 2.59 GHZ

Nvidia 950M

RAM 8,00 GO
64 Bits

Affinity Designer, Affinity Photo Installed

 

Can't Install the Beta of Aff Publisher! 

 

As administrator or not! :o

After the proposition of the path of installation - C:\Program Files\Affinity\Publisher Public Beta

2 seconds after Preparation of Installation : failure of the installation

What is this mystery ?

I see that AAinity is an Installe 32 Bits so why C:\Program Files\Affinity\Publisher Public Beta is proposed ?

That must be Program Files (x86) no ? but same result Failure of the Installation! :)

 


Is beautiful that please without concept!

then Press the Button Install Publisher!

For your information. You can install Publisher on other drives than C: too. Mine e.g. is on I: and it works without a problem.
