Replied to this post: http://community.coreldraw.com/forums/t/5286.aspx which I found when I googled for some help about the "Failed to launch server application" when trying to edit a bitmap out of CorelDraw, only later saw that specific post was for X3. I have the same trouble, only with X4.
To recap my problem:
When calling the "edit bitmap" function in X4 - I receive this message: "Failed to launch server application". Paint opens, closes, opens, closes and then the message pops up.
I tested several files, different bitmaps, different dpi's, new files with newly converted bitmaps (filled rectangle to bitmap). To no avail.
Any help would be appreciated!
It's the OLE server. Press F8 on start up of Draw and Photopaint and it fixes it. If you do it correctly you get a message "rebulid workspace".
Start with that and if it doesn't work then there are other options that might.
Thanks Yani! Did the F8 with Paint, it worked.
Thank you Yani. But I unlucky .It's dosn't work for Coreldraw 12 of mine. I re install windows and face with this problem.
Can not edit object barcode and always show these error . Anyone who has experience please help...
I have the same problem ever since I loaded X5 trial and removed it. I've talked with Corel but they couldn't help either..even after logging into my computer. I've tried rebuilding both Draw and Paint, as well as a total and complete removal and reinstallation. By complete I mean I used the checklist from Corel on how to completely remove X4 (including registry entries).
After a complete reload, the problem is still there. No functions are grayed out, but neither double clicking or choosing the edit bitmap function works. It's driving me wild.
Any help from anyone would be appreciated.
Hello; I tryed the X4 trial ver. and it changed all of my "CDR" files too ver X4 even thoue I hadn't opened them. You may have something like that? But it would let me open and save them back to the ver 11 I was using untill I got the X4 ( and it's the best CorelDraw I've ever Used.)
