20 Most Recent Micrografx Windows Draw Graphics & Print Studio 5 for PC Questions & Answers

Each Micrografx Designer 3.1 *.drw file should hold one page of drawings, and that one page should be at page 1 in the Micrgrafx layout.

Corel Designer Technical Suite X5 has a free 30-day trial period. This program will import a Micrografx Designer *.drw file and let you SAVE AS or EXPORT AS an *.svg file.

Many current drawing programs, e.g., Visio, can import this *.svg file and let you save as a *.vsd file.

But if your *.drw file contained many pages of drawings, your converted file will have many pages of drawings but often in a single large page that you cannot edit. So safer to start out with *.drw files that each contain one page, and that one page should be drawn at page 1 within Micrografx Designer.

I have used the above method to convert very old Micrografx Designer 3.1 *.drw files to Visio *.vsd files. One problem was the Greek letters that were italics in the *.drw file are not italics in the *.vsd file.

It is because it is not compatible with win7. But you can run that software in win 7 with xp compatibility mode. For that go to control panel->add remove program then uninstall it from there. Then insert your cd into rom. Then open it and right click on setup.exe then click on property then click on compatibility second tab then select win xp service pack 2 and enable check box of "run as "administrator" then apply and ok. Then run that setup.exe then it will install it in winxp mode in win7 then you can use it. If still not work then you need to buy that software version which is compatible for win7. Let me know if you need further assistance. Thanks for using FixYa.

Hello, I had the same problem. windows draw has been working for years under Windows XP then suddenly impossible. I think there is a conflict with others programs i installed.
I found THE solution after reading many topics on the net :
Install acrobat reader 4 on your system. Then run acrobat reader 4. Last, run Micrografx windows draw 6 while acrobat reader 4 is running on your system too.
Maybe it works with a more recent version of acrobat reader but i didn't try. Maybe this solution works also with windows draw 5 but i didn't try.
