    Default Why wont my Win 7 PC update Web Designer 16

    I'm running Version 16 Web Designer Premium and got an update notification from Xara in the last month or so . On my Windows 10 laptop, it updated just fine but I get an error message every time on the Win 7 Desktop. The error message says "This program is blocked by group policy. For more information contact your administrator"

    The 2 computers sync files on dropbox

    screenshots attached of version and message

    Hoping someone can help. Click image for larger version.

    Is your version of Windows 7 64-bit?

    Dropbox is not relevant.

    For your Win7 install, I suggest you download from this page: https://www.xara.com/uk/web-designer/download/.
    Then right-click and run as Administrator.

    If your Win7 laptop is 32-bit, you cannot do anything as Xara has dropped 32-bit.

    Thanks for the suggestions. I can confirm my computer system is 64 bit so I'll try the suggestion by Acorn. I have submitted a ticket to Magix but no solution suggested yet.

    Jack, great news.

    @Xara - it is pity that you have stopped updating this page with the more recent versions...
