I'm trying to find the install location in Windows, so I can tell another application to launch Fresco. I can't seem to find it anywhere, Windows will not let me go to the install location from any menu and search can't find it. 

 

Am I being a bit dim?

Hi Rohit, 

Thanks for getting back to me!

I'm using Storyboarder to storyboard shots for films. There's a button in Storyboarder that launches and external drawing app (currently set to photoshop) that let's you draw the boards. Storyboarder handles the order of the boards and relinks the new drawing with your timeline as you draw in PS. I was trying to change PS for Fresco, but you need to tell Storyboarder where the .exe is.

Hello David,

 

Fresco is a Windows UWP app, so it's different from traditional Windows apps. It's install location is no accessible directly. Can you share the details of workflow you are trying to acheive? 

 

Thanks,

Rohit

There is a problem with Fresco. Since it's a UWP app, I'm unable to access Properties>Compatibility Mode. I need to override the DPI because the program isn't smart enough to adjust it's resolution to be the correct aspect ratio on my Huion Kamvas Pro 16 display tablet. Do you have any work arounds? 

 

Thank you.

Hi David!
I know the thread is a bit old but wanted to add that you need to access the uwp.fresco.exe file, and since it's an app, not in the usual place
On my computer it's C:\Users\COMPUTERNAME\AppData\Local\Microsoft\WindowsApps
YOU NEED TO MAKE HIDDEN FILES VISIBLE

This is not accessible if you don't do that first
You can make the all items visible in the explorer
see screenshot attached

Hope it helps!

I did not but it doesn't matter. If you set Fresco as the default app to open .PSD it files won't work. Adobe fresco doesn't save locally. So if you use it to open a .PSD file hitting save will not update that .PSD file. So it will never work.
