I just reinstalled CorelDraw 12 on my new computer, but I can't open it.  I get the following error message:

"Valid workspace file not found at the path specified.  XML document must have a top level element."

Can anyone tell me what's happening here?

Thanks in advance. 

I have the same promlem do you know how to fix it.

if youy do plz let me know

thank you from dogbite

 I am having the same problem too...did you figure it out yet?

Press F8 and hold while CorelDraw is launching and accept the default workspace when prompted.

This will reset the workspace and hopefully will solve your problem.


I had the same problem and that solution worked perfectly. Thanks for help.

Thanx my man - You are a STAR !
