I'm converting a BMP to High Quality Trace/Contour. It worked fine until a week ago, then started to degrade. First it only crashed once I adjusted the sliders to what I wanted, never completing. Now the runtime error pop-up show up and freezes the program the moment the PowerTrace GUI shows up or starts to process the default trace setting and just sits at about 10%.I've checked my Win7 Events logs and while the runtime error detail can vary a bit, they are more or less the same ones over and over.I've updated my Visual Studio 2005 and 2008 (the ones native to X5), no go. So I uninstalled and re-installed the entire Studio Suite. Still no-go.If I can't fix this, I may need to re-install my older Graphics Suite 12 but having rarely used Draw then, I don't know if the PowerTrace is available or as tweakable as in X5.This is a bit frustrating for my project is 99% completed and needs this last conversion.
What could be interfering/causing this?Thank you.~ Philip
Did you have any reason to think Visual Studio might be involved? Was that part of the error message? If not, I think you'd do better updating .net 4.0.
I'd also suggest you delete your temporary files ( start > run > %temp% ) fairly often.
Thank you very much, HarryLondon -- the .NET update/reinstall fixed the problem! My .NET must have gotten corrupted somehow.Isn't it nice when things can be fixed with ease once in a while? - lol.
Hi harryLondon , I have just come across this thread. I hope this gets to you as I have found no other solution.
I have been having the same trouble with tracing in X5. I cleared the temp folder ok (167000 files/6.5 gb!).
But I dont understand the references to Visual Studio and in particular
.net 4.0. What are these and where are they and how do I update them?
I see soniclight resolved the issue with updating .net4.0 .
If you receive this please help! I have lost a whole so far day trying to rectify this when I should have been converting .bmps to vectors.
Hello bishopflynn; You can download the .Net for the Windows you are using at MS. I don't think Visual Basic has anything to do with the Tracing in Corel, but the temp files do.

This was relevant to SonicLight's original problem -- but its a completely different program (for video production). It will not be relevant in your case.

This one is relevant. It is a microsoft programming library, which CorelDraw and many other windows programs require.
If you have windows XP then you need .net 4.0 which you can download from http://www.microsoft.com/en-gb/download/details.aspx?id=17851
For windows 7 onwards, .net 4.5.2 is recommended and available from http://www.microsoft.com/en-gb/download/details.aspx?id=42643
You can just download and install the correct one, without needing to check for or uninstall any previous versions.
This may not be the answer to the problem that you have, but installing an up to date .net is a good start.
