Recommended Posts

I am a happy Affinity Photo user and own a paid 1.6.7 license. Have tied 3 times to download the new 1.7 release and every time get the same error message attached below (stating my e-mail or product key is wrong).

What am I doing wrong. I am logging into store.serif.com as an exciting customer, go to get my download link and download the dmg file. When I start affinity 1.7 I enter the same e-mail and the download number By hand, paste have tried it all) but it gives me the error message.

Please help since I am very eager to use 1.7

I have never mastered color management, period, so I cannot help with that.

1.6.7 is a Mac app store release number. You do not download the update from Serif (that's for people who bought directly and have a product key from the Affinity Store). Mac app store owners find their free updates automatically in the Mac app store "updates page" (hint press CMD+R to refresh)

Hello All,

I too had the situation that it would not accept the product key for Photo. I wondered if this was a result of an upgrade from Windows 7 to Windows 10. I do have Photo on another machine and tried to check that I had the correct key. However, I cannot find where the key is kept. Where can I check the product key on my working copy of Photo?
