Update 1.7.3 Fails - No reason

Recommended Posts

I am trying to update my Affinity Photo and Designer to 1.7.3 and the setup fails.  No reason given, doesn't even look like it tries, just immediatley a Setup Failed popup on both of them.  I've tried just running them, running htem as administrator, nothing seems to work.  Windows 7

Rebooting Windows before trying the install may help. I would reboot then try running the installer as Administrator.

If that doesn't work, you can press and hold the Windows key and press R to get a Run box. Type or paste %temp%\AffinitySetup into the box and press OK.

A File Explorer window will open, with some directories containing the setup logs. If you look at Setup.log and SetupUI.log in the newest directory you should find a more descriptive error message. You could upload the files here, or search for "Error" and report the complete message.

Hi Wizaerd,

Please could you try Walt's suggestions and if they don't work provide the logs he mentioned this will allow me to look into this further :)
