CorelDraw X6 32bit or 64bit?

Hello everyone, I am running CorelDraw X6 on a 32 bit Windows XP system and am having quite a bit of problems with it.  Worked with X4 for 2 years and now I can't do MANY of the things I had done before. I was trying to check to see if I have the 64 version installed (if that's even possible) on my 32 bit system.  How do I know which program is running and how can I change this if it's the wrong one?  Thanks again for the help.

  • Hello Christopher! 64-bit versions of X6 applications carry that description after the name in the title bar. Thus they are unmistakable.

    You could not install 64-bit version of CGS X6 on 32-bit Windows.

    If you list the things formerly done in X4 that seem not to work or appear unavailable in X6, I am sure members of the forum will provide confirmation and guidance. One question that will be quickly asked of you is whether you have tried to import a customized CORELDraw X4 workspace into CORELDraw X6. This is a definite 'no-no' and requires the F8 reset.

    Others running CGS X6 on Windows XP [32-bit] will have to vouch for happiness of the marriage of this couple.


    Good luck!

  • Hello Christopher; I'm running a X6 on a 32 bit Windows Vista and it does OK, and I have X6 64 bit running on a i5 with Windows 7 64 bit. and it does OK also. I also use X4 on the same computers and never have a problem. Having the right amount of ram for the setup is important, I did have X4 running on a of the shelf Dell with there XP loaded and had problems sometime. I think that once they come out with the up-dates for X6 it will be the best Corel ever. Right now in X6 it has a little trouble with displaying wide files ( 400" and over ) it works but the zooming is not up to speed yet, and some of the tools like "Coutour" doesn't remember your last settings, but it is VERY fast.
      Tell us what you are have trouble with and someone will jump in with some kind of answer for you.

    Check your shortcut that starts the app. On 64 bit Windows all 64 bit apps are installed to the Program Files directory. If it points to that directory rather than The Program Files (x86) directory then it is 64 bit.


  • I have been unimpressed with Corel's support on CorelDRAW Graphics Suite 2020 (the 2020 version), where (without informing users prior to purchase, as in we are left to discover this major issue on our own afterward), Corel has ELIMINATED the ability to install both the 64-bit and 32-bit versions of the CorelDRAW Graphics Suite together on the same system, which means that we can no longer use our 32-bit Photoshop plug-ins on the same machine where we use our 64-bit plugins.  Rather than offering to work to fix the issue for 2020 users, Corel simply states, "since CDGS2019, we can't any longer install the 32bit and 64bit of CDGS side by side. Please make a decision on what version you need to install."  That, of course, is total BS, and leaves users without an acceptable solution, and the worst part is, as I noted, Corel does NOT inform upgraders to 2020 that they will not longer be able to install the 32-bit version AND the 64-bit version of the suite on the same computer.
