Corel DRAW X4 and Windows7 64bit

Recently installed Win7 64bit, and Corel Draw X4 won't install. I just get an error message saying The version of this file is not compatible with the version of windows that you're running. I've tried installing in compatibility mode for everything since XP SP2 and no luck. I was running Vista 64bit before and it ran fine.

    Ian,

    just in order to confirm the reports of others I have CorelDRAW X4 installed on my Win7 Ultimate 64bit and have no problem with it. I think the problem is somewhere else. However please note that though your Win7 user has admin privileges does not mean that every action is performed with admin rights. This is how Win7's UAC works. In order to install CorelDRAW as administrator you have right click on setup.exe and select "run as administrator" option.

    Tomasz,

    I am interested in buying CorelDRAW x4, I also own Windows 7 Ultimate 64 bit. Would there be any problems or issues if I am to install it for the first time? I have no previous versions of CDGS and I am a totally new user.

    thank you

    If you have problems installing/running X4 on Windows 7 (or even Vista), make sure you have the latest X4 service pack installed. It is the Service Pack 2 that ensures that CGS X4 will run under Win 7/Vista...

    Why not try out the new X5 (free trial) ?

    Just as information to other users who think its just them.

    I've been using X4 on a Win7 32bit computer for the last few months without problems (and CorelDraw since v3) , updated it and all. Now  installing from the original DVD on a Windows 7 x64 and then tried to upgrading to the latest Service Pack and Hot fix....but it fails. It cant find it or what ever it is.. Tried over and over again. Reinstalled CorelDraw X4 and same result. Corel works.. but the servic pack won't.

    X5 is agood idea... unless you just got the X4 less then 1 year ago...Yes
