I have this issue that I cannot upgrade to service pack 3, itried instaling it but it just comes up with this error message
Hope someone here can enlighten me about this as I am clueless.
Thats because you're already on Service Pack 3 build. You need to only install the hotfix 4 that was released after SP3. After that the version number would be 184.108.40.2065;
CorelDRAW Graphics Suite X7Tabbed Interface, Transparency in Fountain Fills, Content Exchange
According to the chart at http://apps.corel.com/patches/cdgsx5/sp3/readme_en.html it looks like you already have SP3:
So maybe you have automatic updates enabled or have installed it previously.
But there is also a hotfix 4 at http://www.corel.com/corel/pages/index.jsp?pgid=800161&ppid=1000083 which you should probably install next.
THanks for quick reply
I get the same message with the hotfix, so now I am clueless, do I need to restart maybe ?
Not sure what has happend here but it just wont let me instal this =(

Looks like Ghoshscript is not installed on your system. Download the version (32-bit or 64-bit) depending on your OS from the link below and install it. Reboot the system after installation.
Ghostscript 9.05 (For 32-bit Windows OS)
Ghostscript 9.05 (For 64-bit Windows OS)
We tried this and it is still black and white on EPS import files =(

Does this happen with all eps files?
Can you try importing the attached eps file and check if it still comes black & white.
I have compressed the eps file, you'll have to unzip first.
For me and him those boxes are in color, its strange this
My mate has a Windows 7 pc and i have XP i can export and import files with no issue I have latest fixes etc , but when he tried to export the files I create He and his mate gets then black and white, while I get colors
He just tried to export the boxes you sent in colors, but he changed them ,but when improted them again they where black and white, so it is something wrong with either export or import for me I have no clue what it could be.
He also cant instal hotfix 4 nor can he instal the latest update.
this is confusing =(
If he has the home and student version, it may not be possible or intended to install the hotfix. But I'm sure that is not the cause of his problem.
However, he may be defaulting to mono settings in the EPS export dialogue.
I'm not sure if you have the same screen in X5, but he should be seeing similar options:
That top one especially, make sure it is not set to greyscale.
My friend and his friend has same setup as you , and both are on native, I have this setup and mine was on CMYK could it be my fault that the files are broken ?
[This is how my setup box looks like I changed mine to NATIVE now,
I think I have seen this behaviour if the file was created using special spot colours and is transferred to a system that does not have the same spot colour settings.
We have tried now to export to us selfs and if you turn OFF concert spot colors and I send them files they are black and white, if I turn it on they see colors but it does NOT keep the PMS coding , this is getting very frustrating as when I export files they are perfect and when they export they dont have color lol , so wierd
Is his version Home and Student? In which case I think he needs SP1 (of H&S) to be able to use pantone spot colours. At least that's what I understand from http://apps.corel.com/patches/cdhsx5/sp1/readme_en.html
H&S SP1 is at http://www.corel.com/corel/pages/index.jsp?pgid=800161&ppid=2900012
These are full versions Corel Draw X3 Graphic suite that has been upgraded to X5 via CD plate , mine and my 1st colleague and 2nd one has it upgraded thru net.
My 1st colleague has it all upto date, but there is still import issues CMYK its fine all colours are there om import, but as soon as he exports PMS they black and white on import.
I who have also have upgrade do not have this issue at all i can import and export fils but they get black and white files on mine this is very strange .
