I loaded the trial of X6 and now I have no thumbnails for X5.
I reassociated the files with X5 ... but still no Thumbs.
Any Ideas?? TIA
Un-install Corel Graphics - Windows Shell Extension.Re-install the same from your X5 disc and please check.
This is a complaint of many users (including myself, until the day I could find out (*) why – I hated it enough). Windows Shell Extension (WSE) is the key of the problem. I still can not understand why this issue was not finally resolved by Developers. It makes no sense: why newer version of WSE does not "understand" automatically the previous one? Developers should pay more attention to this issue because of growing complaints from users. (Or, at least, during the install setup, the user be adequately warned about this "phenomenon").
(*) Help came from Forum Members.
Pratik Shah said:If you have both X5 and X6 installed, it is recommended to have X6 shell extension. In control panel check which shell extension is installed. If it is v16 then do this...
Right click any cdr file and click properties.
Under General Tab, click Change button...
In the new dialog that opens up, you'll see all CorelDRAW program icons (depending on CDGS versions you have installed). Select X6 CorelDRAW version. Hit OK and close all dialog boxes.
Pratik, your solution worked perfectly for me, thanks.
Thanks Pratik, All is good in the world again.
