Important Note: I am using a Substance Painter liscense and installation distributed by Steam.

I've been working on an important portfolio project in version 7.4.3. Steam automatically updated my Substance Painter to version 8.1.0 on June 7th. Since then, I have not been able to load or open this particular project without Substance Painter immediately crashing. I have 3 or so different save files & back ups of this project, and none of them can be opened. I'm thankful this is a personal project and not part of a deadline.

I've troubleshot my installation; deleted its preferences and settings, files & registries. Tried verifying the installataion, and also reinstalled. No luck. Sent bug reports within the software as well.

With my Liscense from Steam: Is it possible to provide me with a standalone version of Substance Painter 7.4.3? I have read on older forum posts that it may possible.
