When I install commercial v2018 on a PC where it was previously trial, setup normally starts the installation. When about 50% occurs, it throws a message that a newer version is installed on this pc and continues to click OK. At the end, he writes info about installing Visual C 2017 libraries, and then immediately the setup ends with a message about incomplete and fatal error. I removed normally the trial before, restarted the PC. What can you do about it? Is there any Corel cleaner installation in general? Did anyone meet that? I don't know what to do with it. Thanks for the possible reaction. Peter
Look in c/program files/corel/ and see it there is a "CorelDraw Graphic Suite 2018" floder
If that folder is there that is the roadblock.
You probably tried to install CDGS or CDTS 2019 at some point and not removed it properly.
The procedure would be very similar except for the install path and version number. Some for C:Windows\
Installer ensure to right-click and select uninstall while following the same procedure above
Here's the CDTS 2018 one in case you need it:
