Catastrophic HD failure on old PC. Decided to purchase new one. Had CorelDraw Graphics Suite 12 on the old one. Will be upgrading to CorelDraw Premium Suite X5. Anyone know whether I will have to install Graphics Suite 12 before installing the Premium Suite x5 upgrade?
As far as I know, yes. Because it is an upgrade, it needs something to upgrade from. Unlike buying the whole thing, where you would be starting from scratch. I had a similar issue when I upgraded my version 11 to X4 (on a different computer) -- I tried to get X4 running but forgot to get my version 11 going prior to start-up.
When you install X5 upgrade and don't have an older version installed the installer will prompt you for a serial number from a previous version. I think that's all you need.
Thanks. I have seen software that would allow a clean install of an upgrade product as long as you could provide something like a license number or the original product CD. I was so hoping Corel would be like that. I am so over the tedium of setting up a new PC.
