i'm try F8 or Repair but can't worked
complate uninstall and install is work
but only 2-3 times for work
i use trial copy corel X4 but this problem is very bad score
your problem has no relation with your corel version
problem from you system
to resolve the problem try to install net framework 3.5 just find it by google
restart directly after
then repair your system in this way:
press winlogo/from keyboard/ with R key
it will run the run window
type inside cmd then enter
it dos screen will appear
it will give you three options retype:
asmall window will appear to you
but your windows cd in the disk reader
and wait to finish this step
then restart your PC and redownload your corel again
you will never see this problem
.net is defective?
but work any other programs and Corel 3-4 times for diffent days
and another day .net going error ? very interesting
but i'm try your suggestion
What is Error 38 ? this error is classified and numbered
Thanks for all
Note: today live again this problem
The problem is with Corel, I had same error after I disabled Protexis Licensing V2 in Windows Services. Just go back and re-enable this. Corel has "spyware" installed to make sure customers who paid for their software are using the license correctly. This site explains how to fix, http://ihecker.blogspot.com/2008/08/corel-draw-x4-error-38-how-to-fix-it.html
I don't understand why Corel uses this software to check legit licenses, any hacker or software thief can get cracks to get around this, so why do us the customer who actually pays for Corel software have to suffer with misc. software installed without our permission. Hope to see this fixed in version X5.
Yes problem is fixed
Thanks @ lmc
Corel why to explain we create a service for licensing and this service is "protexis"
we can't be accept any other 3. party software
i'm use only try or view file maybe 10 times in a year
but run every time unnecessary service

Erm, I do not even have a Protexis Licensing in my Windows Services?
How do I obtain this Service?
Addendum: I installed Protexis.
Have it automatic, is running, error 38 persists?
Have you tried a repair install of X4 since protexis was fixed?
Sorry, had a problem with internet.
F8+program does not work, how do I repair, please?
A repair install is usually possible from windows control panel > programs and features (in windows 7) or add and remove programs (in XP).
Right click on the X4 program name in the above list, which usually only has one option -- uninstall/change -- and click on it. You should then see three options, one of which is repair.
If that doesn't work, you may need to use the DVD or the original download, which should also have a repair option.
