Huge Problem

Hi All

I can't get CorelDraw to open on my PC at all

It will not let me uninstall it and no matter how far back I go with system restore it has no effect.

When I try to open corel a box pops up with

Key:"HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\" Value:"ConfigDir" not found in registry

So I click on OK and get

The base UI Language directory is invalid 

Click OK 

Key:"HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\" Value:"ConfigDir" not found in registry

Click OK

The base UI Language directory is invalid

This goes on a few time until finally I get

Runtime Error!

Program:C:\Program Files..................

This application has requested the runtime to terminate it in an unusual way.

Please contact the applications support team for more information

 

Help

I can't remove the program and It will not let me repair the program from the disk so I feel helpless

I run my business using corel and without it I have no business

  • When I try to un-install corel I get the message

     

    The patch package could not be opened. Verify that the patch package exists and that you can access it, or contact the application vendor to verify that this is a valid windows installer patch package

  • We've seen that problem too.  The problem is that the language pack is not installed correctly or not installed at all.   A quick fix is to just re-install the language pack.   Assuming that you want english, you would execute this comand from your CD:

     CE-Drive:\Disk1\CGS13\en.msi

     There are no responses to this install, it just re-installes the language pack for English.   For other languages choose the appropriate msi.   These are generally named two characters + .msi, e.g. French = fr.msi and spannish is es.msi.

    The problem I have now is when I try to Edit Bitmap in corel draw it will not open Photo paint but brings iop the error message  'Failed to create object. Make sure the object is entered in the system registry'

     

    But at least I am making money againYes

    Same error messages when using Windows Explorer (!), but command above not workable with Corel Draw 6 Disk (also, I'm unclear what "CE-Drive" is--typo for CD Drive?). WinXP SP3.

    Put the CD into the drive and do a "Repair" of the installation. This should re-register PhotoPaint to be the bitmap editor, when you are in CorelDRAW.
