Windows Store or buy direct download? + Using on multiple machines

Recommended Posts

Anything wrong with buying on Windows Store?
(I personally prefer to buy from there, I know it's something I can trust)

Are there any limitations?

One important thing for me is being able to run on 3/4 laptops.
All of these have my Windows login - so if buying on Windows Store, all is OK.
But if I buy the direct download, are there any limitations on usage?
I will only ever use on 2 machines to be honest... and on each, I'm only logged one at a time when using.

Due to how the Windows Store version works, it's can't be used as an external editor. You can install it on Windows machines that use the same account, up to 10 devices. If purchased direct from the Affinity Store you can still install the app on devices you own/control.

Windows Store apps run in a sandbox environment - you have to change the permissions before you can use AP as an external editor.  Unless things have changed, you can't use the beta version with the Windows Store licence.
