I am running Affinity Photo 1.6.5.123 on Windows 10 Desktop. I am administrator and have no problem running the application. My partner who also uses the computer cannot access the app. The licence is confusing. Is it possible for her to access the app or is it restricted by the licence or ?? Thanks.

I temporarily made the account 'administrator' and restarted the computer  but Affinity Photo did not appear on their programme list.

Windows provides a choice of installing a program for everyone or for the individual user. It sounds like somehow your Affinity program was installed for just you.

Did you buy the program from the Affinity Store directly, or from the Microsoft Store?

You could try (if you're familiar doing this) to add user permissions to the photo.exe file.

From the Microsoft Store

The Microsoft Store, by default I believe, installs applications only for the current user. There are methods to make applications available to other users of the machine, but I don't use the Microsoft Store enough (nor on machines with multiple users) to know what they are.

It may be better for you to look in the Microsoft forums or talk to Microsoft Support (or Microsoft Store Support) or do an Internet search to find out more about how to do that.
