Cannot open ANY documents today (pc windows 10 version)

Recommended Posts

Oh my god, I am in a crisis I have built a 16-page document that is due tomorrow at the printers and affinity publisher has decided it doesn't want to open any of my documents no matter which way I try. I seriously will not get paid if this cannot be resolved by 12 o clock tonight. The program opens fine I open a doc it opens then immediately crashes, this process is the same whether I open from the recent link, open as new or open directly from the file itself?

 

Any help would be humongous right now,

 

thankyou

Kane

Hi,

what is the error message / Crashreport available?

 

Any example document that you can share?

I think that would help to speed things up.

 

Exact Version of your Affinity Program (I expect you use the release version, so trying with the beta could be an option (Make Backups of your documents before using in Betas):

Hello, thank you for your reply I will answer your questions as best i can

Error | Crash Report

 

there is none at all. It just powers down and thats the end of that. I have also discovered that the same problem is on all my affinity suite (publisher, photo and designer). The problem isnt any one document its all documents including any attempt to create a new document from fresh. This feels like a bigger problem than a corrupt file or photograph.

I am presently using the present release version. My beta is no longer working but will look at the link you provided and see if this can be a temporary solution

 

thank you

Any chance to use another computer or OS (Windows?) Installation?

I think a simple reboot was already a try?

Other steps take some time:

Best option would be:

If any spare ssd / hdd availabe, quick install a fresh windows 10 1803/1809 on a new disk if available or internet speed is fast enough

Or get another computer from someone / or install Virtual Machine


Windows Image / system file check

sfc / scannow
Dism /Online /Cleanup-Image /ScanHealth
Dism /Online /Cleanup-Image /CheckHealth
Dism /Online /Cleanup-Image /RestoreHealth

(https://howtofixwindows.com/run-dism-command-windows-10/)

 

Just some additional ideas:

check your disks for problems

check your date and time
remove any overclocking

Or some options for designer to avoid usage of grapchics adapter:

 

Change in Options --> Performance the Renderer to WARP

 

Run with additional parameter: --no-hw-ui

example: designer.exe --no-hw-ui

Check for any Windows 10 updates today/yesterday and if you find any reverse them
