Title: Affinity designer and Affinity Photo latest upgrades problems - Eddie
Post by: Eddie on March 01, 2018, 09:11:15 AM
Hello everyone. has anyone done the latest upgrades to designer and photo and found that as soon as you click to create something then the program closes down. Both programs were working fine before I upgraded them today.

Not noticed any issues in AP but AD has been crashing regularly for a few weeks now when I am in the middle of creating something. Might be due to the last update hadn't given it much thought. Very frustrating but fortunately when I reopen AD a message to Restore UNsaved work appears. If it wasn't for that I would be chomping at the bit!.  :yes03:

Don't know of any worthy suggestions to offer Eddie other than to try uninstalling and reinstalling. In my experience I find that after reinstalling. You could also write to Serif and notify them of the issue.

Hi The problem is with upgrade 1.6.3.103 on designer and photo. The last versions were running ok on my windows computer and today as I went to use them they came up with a message to upgrade to later version which I did. I did photo first as I was waiting to do a photo so thought I will upgrade before I do it. When I opened it after the upgrade and pressed anywhere on the screen it just closed down completely. So i went into designer and it had the same message about the upgrade so I thought OK I will try doing that with the same result. Luckily I have MAC versions too so can still work away.I had an error code come up so I sent that off to Serif a little while ago.

Hi  Sheryl  Yes I did try a re-install and a close down of my computer but still the same problem. Just wondered if anyone else had done the upgrade today with the same results

Oh I have update 1.6.1.93 which I thought was the latest update Eddie. Normally get a message to update when I open AD but haven't received one, at least not yet. Need to look into this a bit further.

Hope Serif can help with a resolution to the issue.

I had the upgrade message come up on both of mine Sheryl thats why I did it. I also uninstalled them and reloaded from my account with exactly the same result so I can only think that the fault lies at Serifs end. Will keep you up to date if I find anything out in the meantime.

I've just put the link to the updates in both the AD and AP Discussion forums, thanks Eddie. No idea why I didn't get the message when opening the programmes to update but all done now.

I've just updated and created a few basic shapes. AD hasn't crashed yet. It may do so at a later date but seems fine at the moment.

sheryl do you mean you have upgraded to 1.6.3.103?
Title: Re: Affinity designer and Affinity Photo latest upgrades problems - Eddie
Post by: Mali on March 01, 2018, 01:00:17 PM
Yes Eddie. I just used AD with the latest update to complete a challenge and it didn't crash when I started to create a shape. That doesn't mean the crashing issue has gone away though as it used to crash randomly and unexpectedly prior to the latest update.

ok, so I uninstalled both designer and photo and switched my machine off and back on and re-installed both programs from my serif account, switched off machine and back on again and tried to run the programs but both just crashed again. Oh well, there's always tomorrow.  :yay:

No problems here.  I d/led and installed this newest one early this morning and have used it all day with no glitches so far.  I actually can't see any big changes ....at least nothing that impacted my work today, but maybe I will find out something  from one of the gurus here.  I do not have AP so I can only comment on AD but so far so good.

No problems here either.   I just used AD to do my project and it worked like it always does.  Have not downloaded AP yet but will do that next. 

Wondering if it could have anything to do with Windows updates?  They just updated my computer today.

I have re-loaded the earlier versions of designer and photo and both work perfectly so canít have been a problem with my computer after all. Still I know my system has all been cleared up now.  :yay:

Where did you find AD 103? I went to the Serif Forum, but only found the pay download, not the update. Yes, I was logged in....I think

Update...Found it!  :laugh1:
