graphics suite x3 won't reinstall

I had a problem and removed x3 according to Corel's instructions.  Now it won't reinstall.  I get the error "1606  unable to access network location" which is normally a windows problem.  Had a tech work on it for 4 hours with me and there is no problem with windows(xp pro version). I know the regedit well by now:)   I can install other programs and even reinstalled graphics suite 12 with no problems.  Only x3 won't install. Did I miss something or could it be a bad cd(it did install fine the first time).

    I spent some time two weeks ago with the same problem. It is fixed by removing from registry WindowsInstaller's internal records for X3.
    I attached the reg-file in zip-archive (unpack it) that automatically DELETES CorelX3 records from WI only.
    After it Windows thinks there is no CorelDRAW X3 installed
    PLEASE BACKUP your registry using e.g. System Restore! - though this regfile only removes Corel records you'll be more confident and safe :-)
    If that won't fix at once the problem, it is because every windows machine has different user index, and if so, you'll need to make some simple modifications manually:
    1. open regedit
    2. expand HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Installer\UserData
    3. there'll be several keys like S-1-5-18. Under each of these short-spelled keys expand to ...
