    Info Running older versions of Xara Deaktop Applications.

    I bought Xara Photo & Graphic Designer 10 and still have XDPXv10 installed but neither would run.

    I asked xara what to do. Little of use came back.

    Now, by chance, I have the trick.

    Ensure all other Xara Desktop applications (XDA) are now running and Run as Administrator either of these first before launching later versions.
    I believe any XDA v11 on do not have this niggle.

    P.S. I hold onto these as they are perpetual licences and I might be able to offer further TG advice. Mad I know.

    Do you means you can run v10s all right with v15.1 loaded or you don't have v10s? If the latter, I was trying to advise that co-running of v11s all the way up to v16 is all OK.

    I have also got XWDPv10 up and running again.

    It is funny finding all those half-finished projects just waiting.

    It is possible to set up a Shortcut, even on the Taskbar, to Run as Administrator.

    Now that's what I call a User Interface.

    Thank you for sharing. I left mine on a dead machine years ago. I think it was a free install from a magazine CD.

    For those thinking about using Xara Xtreme 5 Silver, it is a 32-bit installation (as are X3D7 and Xara Photo Graphic Designer 10).

    My Xara Photo & Graphic Designer 10 runs just fine in Windows 10, although it's been a while since I used it. I normally use V16.3, However If I have to reinstall 15.0 then I will revert back to 10 anyway.

    This is what worries me. People seem resigned to getting a bad deal through Xara that they just accept it and go back to what works.

    I want perfection, now, as I have paid for it. A slight exaggeration perhaps but if we all strive for better then we will get it.

    TGers say they wouldn't write a book with it (GaryP has, with caveats) Numbering
    Google/SEO says it doesn't like your websites much Adaptive
    Illustrators say the graphical tools have gone stale Mesh
    Xara says it's mostly for vector work so photo tools are in the background Tracer
    Typographers can only dream ...

    ... we get SmartShapes.
