My old Windows XPpro PC is about to die and I intend to replace it with a new PC running Windows10 Pro 64bit. Due to a very limited budget, I can't afford to upgrade
my old graphics software as well and therefore will need to see if I can possibly re-install my existing copy of CorelDraw Graphics Suite X5 (Windows 32bit version).
Has anyone in the CorelDraw community tried to do the same and have you had any success?
Any constructive advice would be welcome.
Very likely it would be ugly, especially on a UHD screen.I thought the 32 and 64 bit version were all in the same disk package?
There are a lot of reasons not to be using 32 bit software.
You should update to the most recent version. X5 is what, 15 years old?
I don't know about X5, but X4 won't install. Curiously, Coreldraw 12 does install but the UI is messed up.
On a new PC you could try creating a virtual machine with a Windows XP environment to run the old version of CorelDRAW. A lot of people do that these days to keep old software alive.
