Ive only ever used CorelDraw Suite X7 Student version.
I installed my X7 suite and transferred my files to my new computer and when I try to open my files I get "This file is version 20.0. You must upgrade your program to open this file"?
But even File Explorer shows the files as "X7 Graphic"?
What's going on?
Windows Explorer shows the file as "X7 Graphic" because you have associated the CDR extension with CorelDRAW X7, Windows doesn't read what file version it actually is.But I have no idea why it says version 2020 when you try to open it if you have saved from X7, it should be technically impossible.
That's what I figured too. Should be technically impossible to save in a newer version that Ive never owned.I hope this isnt Corel playing games trying to force me to upgrade?
Just to follow up in case someone else comes across the same issue. I submitted a question to Corel support on this by email, they replied
"This is to inform you that the File version 20 is Coreldraw Home and Student 2018, I can see that from your registered products that you have Coreldraw Home and Student 2018 Please use the below link to download the Coreldraw Home and Student 2018"
They gave me a download link and a serial number and its working now.
How I ended up with CorelDraw X7 Home and Student is a mystery to me cause I have the same CD that I uploaded from a couple years ago. But its working now.
