    Info Re: The Xara Desktop Applications with and without the Update Service

    For interest, update of Affinity range (Publisher, Designer, Photo) from 1.8.0 to 1.8.2 was: Download: Update > Yes > (Setup completed successfully) > Close.

    @Xara - go figure it out.

    As long as the virtual machine is backed up, external to your computer, you just copy it back in. A VM is just a bunch of files in a folder. You would have to reinstall the host program.

    Edit: Should mention that there are restrictions in the video drivers. The "video card" is the one provided by the host program. In my case, that is the VMware driver, not the hardware driver by my video card manufacturer. This can be restrictive for things like 3D.

    I think I like this idea of a virtual machine, is it real hard to set up. I know someone suggested in another thread to wait till v17.1 so they will get the bugs out so I'm waiting until then to buy back in. But I sure like the idea that I would not lose my updates.
