    You wrote this: "the file may be missing. See if you can find just download the CorelDraw8 Clipart file by itself online." That will not solve my problem as I already have the disks.

    Here is my problem again:

    I have used CorelDraw 8 for years, and at that time the
    clipart worked fine, even with Windows XP, but then I purchased and installed CorelDraw X4.
    But after Installing CorelDraw X4, I was no longer able use CorelDraw 8 clipart,
    as it would not open.



    I recently purchased a CorelDraw 8 from eBay, thinking this would solve my problem, but unfortunately I still have the same problem, even with the new software.



    I called CorelDraw support, but they said CorelDraw 8 is too old to offer support. I hope this explains it better. Thanks!

    MNfisherman, I am very confused from your instruction, it is about as clear as mud.

    I have used CorelDraw 8 for many years, and during that time the clipart always worked fine, even though I am using Windows XP.
    But then I purchased and installed CorelDraw X4. But after Installing CorelDraw X4, I found that I no longer could no longer use CorelDraw 8 clipart, as it would not open, even when I tried to import it. Even after I removed CorelDraw X4, I still was not able to open any of the clipart folders.

    I even purchased another CorelDraw 8 from someone through eBay, as it was new and never used. But after installing the newer software, I found that the clipart still could not be opened. Why would this happen? Does it have something to do with the CorelDraw X4 software, even though it has been supposedly totally removed? Thanks!

    For some reason you have not posted the information that I sent to you, so I'll resend it again:

    "I have used CorelDraw 8 for many years, and during that time the clipart always worked fine, even though I am using Windows XP.
    But then I purchased and installed CorelDraw X4. But after Installing CorelDraw X4, I found that I no longer could no longer use CorelDraw 8 clipart, as it would not open, even when I tried to import it.

    I hope this gives you more information, as your previous response did not cover the actual problem.

    To Whom It May
    Concern:






    I read the
    solution you proposed, and it did not cover my problem at all, even after I
    thought I had explained the problem quite extensively. So, I will submit my
    problem again below. Please read it carefully.






    "I have used CorelDraw 8 for many years, and during all
    that time the clipart always worked fine, even with Windows XP, which the
    people at CorelDraw said it was not designed to work with.





    But then
    unfortunately I decided to purchase CorelDraw X4. But after Installing
    CorelDraw X4, I found that I no longer could no longer use CorelDraw 8's
    clipart anymore, as it would not open. I tried various methods to open
    CorelDraw 8's clipart



    even when I tried to import it into CorelDraw 8. Even
    after I had removed CorelDraw X4 from my computer, I still was not able to open
    any of the CorelDraw 8 clipart folders into CorelDraw 8.


    So when
    I saw that CorelDraw 8 was being offered on eBay, I decided to purchase it, as
    it was new and had never used. But even after installing the new CorelDraw 8
    software, I found that I still could not open CorelDraw 8 clipart folders.



    Why
    would this happen? Does it somehow have something to do with the CorelDraw X4
    software, even though it has been supposedly completely removed?"
    Thanks!

I had a similar problem with Coreldraw 8. I used it successfully for years and loved it on varoius version of Windows, currently XP. I installed Coreldraw 12 and still had Corel 8 on the computer.
Now the problem: Corel 8 and Corel 12 could not open the Corel 8 clipart disk #2, only just down to the folder level. When I right clicked on the Corel 8 disk #2 clipart folder and checked the Path Properties it gave me a path other than the correct clipart disk location (in my case it should have read E:) BUT it was some weird location like
MNfisherman referenced above and read: C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Documents\Corel.! What the?! I knew the path should have read E: to access the clipart since the clipart was on the disk and in my CD tray, so I uninstalled Corel 12 thinking that was the problem since 8 had worked fine, then checked the clipart CD again but still no luck.
I then uinstalled Corel 8, so now I had no Corel program on hard drive. I put the Corel 8 clipart disk #2 in the computer knowing it would not open the clips but just to see if I could get beyond the folder level to see if the clipart files were there and yes I could. (I could only read the names of the files at this point because no Corel on computer) So I only reinstalled Coreldraw 12 figuring the later version would open the older version clipart and Success! It worked. I think my problem had something to do with the Corel 8 MF indexer, but I'm not sure. I had a red semi circle (like the Corel Set Up Semi circle) on all of the clipart folders instead of the regular yellowish fold so thats why I think it had something to do with indexer or other type of setup conflict). Now all of my clipart folders appear normal being the regular yellowish color folder.
I suggest using a clean slate by unistalling all versions (Make sure you shut down the computer after each uninstall to get rid of all of the components of the program and then restart the computer) and then only reinstall the newest version. Hope this helps. Good Luck

Hi.

The new X4 comes with its own clip art collection. The X4 Suite includes a collection of Clip arts.
If you have X4 the clip arts are stored in a folder called Extra. The folder is included in Corel DVD. If you did full installation, you will find a subfolder called Extra inside Corel installation folder, under Program files.

Note: you need to have Corel full installation DVD to include the clip arts, shareware and downloaded versions do not include the clip arts.

Corel license clip arts with each single version by purchasing clip art collections from third party companies. For this reason X4 cannot include Corel Draw 8 collection, and the old collection cannot be used or distributed (eg. making it available by download, or making the old clipart CD compatible with X4) with the new Corel suite.

The old Corel Draw 8 clip art collection was originally licensed buying the distribution rights from a company called One Mile Up.
If for some reason you really need any particular Clip art from Corel 8, you must contact One Mile Up and ask expressely for the clip or the collection. You will have to pay to get the old clips.
Here the link.

If you repute my solution helpful, then please take some times to accept the solution. Providing good repair tips requires time and skills, and your feedback is important for us.

Best regards.

Ginko.

CorelDraw X4 still support files (graphics) from Version 7 to X4 (of course). So there should be no problem using the cliparts from CorelDraw 8.
However, there might be problems in installing the CorelDraw X4 on your computer.First you need to check if your computer meets the minimum system requirements for CorelDraw X4. Please find below the system requirements for CorelDraw X4.

  • Windows Vista or Windows XP (with SP2 or later)
  • 512 MB of RAM
  • Pentium III, 800 MHz processor or AMD Athlon XP
  • 1,024 × 768 or better monitor resolution
  • DVD drive
  • Mouse or tablet
If you think the minimum requirements meet your computer specifications, then you must have no problem using the software.
Did you upgrade your CorelDraw 8 to X4? You may try uninstalling the CorelDraw 8 first before installing the full version of X4.

    it's in XXX:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Documents\Corel
    ..and XXX is the same drive letter that windows is installed on.

    The content is installed there so we're sure that windows will be able to index it for faster searches.

    clipart in X4 exsisting anyway.So you have to do next.First of all ,you have to import some image,then click on image.Up on the top you see trace bitmap,you clicko on it,then you see small window with three command.Last down command call : outline trace ....you click on it and you can see new small window with 6 commands..one of them is clipart.......and that*s it.





    it's also in the commands list. Go to Tools/Customization/Commands and search for "scrap". Then drag the scrapbook icon to the Windows/Dockers menu where it belongs. OK and you are set.

Corel DRAW X6 problems


Hi,
I presume you mean CorelDRAW Graphics Suite X6 and NOT technical Suite?
If nothing seems to work I would then do as follows.
1.Uninstall CorelDRAW X6 via Control Panel
2.After uninstalling X6 in the Control Panel - Go BACK to the Control Panel and uninstall "Corel Graphics - Windows Shell Extension".
3.Then go to Documents > Corel folder > Uninstall/Delete anything that says CorelDRAW X6
4.You can also go to C: > Program > Corel and delete anythign that says CorelDRAW X6
5.Repeat step 4, but choose folder called Programx86, and delete anything that says CorelDRAW X6
6.You should now have uninstalled everything that useally could disturb when you re-install from scratch.
7.NOW put in your DVD again with CorelDRAW Graphics Suite X6 - and INSTALL from Scratch.
8.You SHOULD now be able to run your CorelDRAW X6.
9.And NOW you should go online to www.corel.com and download and install Update/service pack and Hotfix for CorelADRAW Graphics Suite X6
10.It should in all normal situations work just fine on your PC with any Windows 7 version as well as any Windows 8 and 8.1 version.
11.Try to use a program to recover and view CDR files. For example, you can try this CDR Open File Tool http://www.cdr.openfiletool.com/
12.Also recommend to come to this forum. Many have useful information on the topic. http://www.filerepairforum.com/forum/cad-tools/cad-tools-aa/coreldraw/479-problems-with-cdr-files
Good luck and hope this helps!

How to cdr repair corrupted image?


If you are using windows 7 or later, you can try opening the folder in windows explorer, right click on the CDR, go to properties and then the previous versions tab. It may have kept an older version.
I can't remember if XP also kept previous versions and it also depends on your configuration, so it is not definite that you will have them.
Another, small, possibility is to look in the same folder and see if you have a file which begins backup_of_... and your filename. But this keeps only one previous copy so if you have saved the file more than once since Wednesday your backup will be too new.
And:

Coreldraw 12 does not launch even on new installation of xp and coreldraw 12


Are you receiving any errors?
Is this the shortcut on your desktop?
I would try navigating to the actual coreldraw.exe file
windows logo + r
type
coreldraw.exe

If it's anything like microsoft word you can use this
window logo + r
type
coreldraw.exe /s or /a for safe mode options.

    If I move or delete an object the screen does not show the change


    Try resetting the workspace:

    Corrupt workspaces may lead to problems with the operability of the application and in some circumstances can prevent the application from launching. To restore default settings in CorelDRAW and PHOTO-PAINT, do the following:
    1. Hold down the F8 key on the keyboard.
    2. With the F8 key depressed, launch either CorelDRAW or PHOTO-PAINT
    3. The following message will appear:
      Are you sure you want to overwrite the workspace with the factory defaults?
    4. Click Yes and release the F8 key.
    Note: Some newer keyboards have an "F Lock" key that must be pressed first to activate the Function keys on the keyboard.
