Question about PC Desktops

1 Answer

I bought aOEM version of Paint Shop Pro X2, and was having trouble with it, and attempted to reinstall, and could not. I uninstalled the old one and still no luck. The error stated that there was a problem with the validity of a patch. I contacted Corel, and they said since this is an OEM, they could not help me. Does anyone know of a solution?

Hi!

Unfortunately, the only sure-fire solution I know of is to reinstall the OS from scratch (best way is to reformat the hard drive) then reinstall the Paint Shop application. More and more OEM software is made to be very finicky as to when and where it will install. The SW companies make much less on OEM SW vs. full versions, so they really want to make sure that it is a new computer that the SW is being installed on, in compliance with the license.

I know this is probably not what you wanted to hear, but I hope it was helpful. Please let me know if this helps solve your problem.

You will need the software program for Jasc Paint Shop to reinstall it. It is not a part of Windows.

its possible that in your printing preferences you have black and white selected. you can also try reinstalling the drivers for your printers, first uninstall them and then install the drivers again preferably newest drivers from the makers website.

I have downloaded corel paint shop pro x2 but when I click on the icon nothing happens. I know I have loaded it because it is in my programs list and does occaisonally work. what is going on


Probably an error that occured during installation. What you need to do is uninstall it, reboot the computer, then install a fresh copy.

The installer you've downloaded may also have been slightly corrupted, that's why its didn't install properly in the first place.

If problem still persists, then I suggest you download the entire installer again.

Let me know how it goes

My computer crashed when downloading an upgrade of Paint shop Pro I want my money refunded


why are you asking for a refund here? you should somehow call the software developer for that...
here is the link of the developers
and by the way.. does it always crash everytime you start the program? because maybe its better you uninstall it and install it back again to use it or use a real program for photo edition like photoshop or a free choice like GIMP or paint.net
