I loaded the trial to update my E2 so that my friend could use here G with it. After it completed that update, I tried to update my E, but everytime I opened it, it will not load and I get an error from Microsoft.

I then tried to load a full version of DS thinking there was something wrong with trial version, but I just get the same message.

To update the E2 you need to use cricut sync not design studio. If you have a regular E you can update it with design studio, gypsy, or CCR.

If you can't get design studio to open you can uninstall and reinstall it and try that

I have tried uninstalling and restalling several times. I can't do anything with DS. Upon loading, I automatically get a message saying there is something wrong with the program and it can't load. :(

It was after I updated my E2, when I tried to use DS again, it would not work.

Hello everyone! Here are some links and instructions that will help you load the Design Studio program:

You will need to have the latest version of the software. Here are some instructions:
1. You can then download the latest program from this webpage: http://mirror.cricut.com...ontpack/CDS_10404220.exe

2. It will take you to the Setup Wizard - click Next - I agree – Install - Finish.

3. Now you will want to download a second update which you can find at the following link: http://mirror.cricut.com...k/FontUpdate_V121009.exe
