Installation Instructions

You can try Designer Pro X for free. You are currently viewing this page on a device that doesn't support our software but you might find the following information useful.

All the features are enabled in this 7 day trial (which can be extended to 30 days on registration), but it does not include the third party plug-ins and only a selection of the templates can be edited. Previews of all the templates are included so you can see exactly what will be in the Online Content Catalog if you purchase - the previews are shown in grey folders and the editable templates are shown in white folders and marked Free Example.

You'll see an intro document on start up, which is a great place to start. You may also find our videos helpful.

  1. Download the Designer Pro trial to your Desktop or other downloads folder
  2. Run the installer file (double-click on it)
  3. Follow the on-screen instructions
We recommend you stop any Registry protection utilities before attempting to install as they can prevent the application from installing correctly.

The Xara Designer Pro X trial can be uninstalled via the Control Panel.

Designer Pro X

Date:May 24, 2018

32-bit or 64-bit?

We now have a version that takes advantage of the power of 64 bit on Windows 7, 8 and 10, if your computer supports it, enabling you to create larger, more content rich websites or graphic designs - excellent news for anyone creating documents with lots of high-resolution photos (typically 50 or more) where the memory limits of 32 bit Windows were becoming a problem. 

Here's how to find out if your computer is 32 bit or 64 bit:

Windows 7: in the start menu right click on Computer, select Properties

Windows 8: hover over the right end of the start bar, click Settings > PC Info

You can select 32 bit or 64 bit after starting the download.
