Designer fail to load after update [240]

Recommended Posts

Hi Arun, installing an old beta doesn't really help us with the beta test ;-). Having a look through the Google results above, it seems people have either solved the issue by Resetting Windows, or by re-installing the Visual C++ runtime (specific to the installed app, we require VS2017 runtime).

I try all possible route from there (as far as I know). But no success. At least AD/AP 231 & APub 238 works for me now .... I need to convert all my 231 works into PDF to go back 1.6.5

Works again AD-231/AP-231 :)

But it will stop running soon, as the betas expire, so you might as well try to resolve the real problem :)

I've tried to hold CTRL while Affinity Designer is starting to reset /clear data, I'm running on Win 8.1 (x64) with the latest Visual C++ 2017 runtime and the problem persists. AD doesn't load correctly. It's very frustrating. :(

Have you tried reinstalling the Visual C++ runtime as Mark suggested above, which is often known to resolve this Windows error?
