Affinity Photo Installation ~ Lynn
« on: December 14, 2016, 11:38:29 AM »
After I purchased and downloaded AP for Windows last week, I encountered a problem trying to paste the Product Key from the clipboard. It failed every time and in the same way, with a black dot and some blank spaces at the start. I e-mailed Serif Orders but did not receive a reply, so this week I e-mailed, including a screen capture of the messed-up Key paste. I received a response today suggesting I copy and paste the Key into Notepad, then paste using the paste from the clipboard icon. I pasted into Notepad and got a black dot followed by about ten blank spaces and the the Key. I copied only the Key and pasted using the paste from the clipboard icon. This time it worked and AP successfully installed. Whew!

I don't know where the black dot and blank spaces were coming from, but they were definitely attached to my Product Key.

I also got an e-mail from Serif Orders today, apologizing for being so late in responding to me. They had no idea what was wrong, so I sent them an explanation of how the problem was resolved and included a copy of the screen capture of the black dot and spaces.

What specifically do you want to know about the forum?

Lynn, glad you got the problem solved!  That has happened to me a time or two in years past but not anymore.  I use a program called ClipMate and it saves everything I copy and stores it into a database.  Does hot have any hidden codes in the text.


Keep on smiling! It will make people wonder what you're up to!! :)
