Unable to Open CorelDRAW after system update


My parents run CorelDRAW at work, connected to a laser cutter. Today Windows did a bunch of updates (Windows 7), and we can no longer get past the splash screen. Also when trying to open a file. This is the exact same behaviour I found here: https://community.coreldraw.com/talk/coreldraw_graphics_suite_x5/f/544/t/24139 

I have tried rolling back windows, uninstalling updates, updating CorelDRAW to latest version, and also running it as Administrator. No luck.

Any suggestions?


CorelDRAW Graphics Suite X5 x64

Hot Fix 4 installed

Windows 7 x64

I can't remember the specs of the computer, but I know they are decent, and it was built with running CorelDRAW in mind, along with the laser.

Does anyone have a solution for this? I can't find any other solutions online, and they need this for their business.
