It's a known issue. See https://github.com/archimatetool/archi/issues/146

Hope to try and sort it out in a future update.

Would be very helpful. Thank you for yr reply.



You may use this trick :

  • Launch regedit and go to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\SideBySide. Then create a new 32bit DWORD entry called PreferExternalManifest with value 1.
  • Create a manifest file in the Archi folder (the same one where the Archi.exe file sits) called Archi.exe.manifest and with the following content :
  • Restart Archi
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8" standalone="yes"?>
<assembly xmlns="urn:schemas-microsoft-com:asm.v1" manifestVersion="1.0" xmlns:asmv3="urn:schemas-microsoft-com:asm.v3">
        <asmv3:windowsSettings xmlns="http://schemas.microsoft.com/SMI/2005/WindowsSettings">

Hope this helps

Best regards
