Ever since I downloaded the 2020 Cdr trial and uninstalled it (wasn't worth it for my workflow) 2018 has started crashing after months of stability. I carried on using 2018 after quickly finding 2019 unreliable and never had a problem. I'm a long yerm Cdr user and have long accepted the occassional crash but I'm suddenly finding 2018 crashing on a regular basis - hangs and then vanishes. Crashed this morning on a simple outine trace.
Maybe you could try a Repair from the CDGS 2018 setup?
Hi Ronnie. I tried that - no good. Crashed again doing a simple line art trace of a small bitmap. I've carried out that process, or similar, a hundred times and no problem before. I didn't want to but I'll probably have to do a reinstall from disc..
This is a probably stupid question, but is it possible that something was left behind of the trial 2020 that's impacting on the earlier versions?
Without really knowing, I guess that there could be something left from the 2020 trial, even though there shouldn't be.Export your workspace (if customized), then reinstall.Do some tracing before you import your workspace again, to make sure it works with a fresh installation.
