Question about Corel Draw 8
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

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.

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.
Did you upgrade your CorelDraw 8 to X4? You may try uninstalling the CorelDraw 8 first before installing the full version of X4.
