Installation Instructions

You can try Web Designer and/or Web Designer Premium for free. These are fully functional versions, all features are enabled, but only a selection of the templates can be edited. Previews of all the templates are included so you can see exactly what you'll get if you purchase - the previews are shown in the Designs Gallery in red folders and marked (preview) and the editable templates are shown in blue folders and marked (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 Xara Web Designer 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.

If you are running Windows XP you must log on to your PC using an Administrator account.

32-bit or 64-bit?
We now have a version of Web Designer Premium that takes advantage of the power of 64 bit on Windows 7 & 8, if your computer supports it, enabling you to create larger, more content rich sites, excellent news for anyone creating large sites 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
