I recently upgraded from X6 to X7. I cannot get the edit bitmap feature to work, it is grayed out. I had this same problem when upgrading from X5 to X6. That problem was rectified by a re-install and reboot. After perusing the forum, I have tried, to no avail the following:
1.) Did a complete uninstall of all Corel products. Ran CCleaner to clean up registry
entries. Did a complete reinstall. Rebooted.
Did not fix.
2.) Went into both Corel Photo-Paint and CorelDraw and
reset the "Associate" file extensions under Tools/Options. Made sure that CPT was selected in Corel
Photo-Paint. Double checked the
association in Windows explorer. Did not
3.) Reset my workspaces (F8) command during
start-up. Did not fix.
4.) Removed my workspaces under
C:\Users\sccarter.DDS\AppData\Roaming\Corel\CorelDRAW Graphics Suite
CorelDraw. Did not fix.
5.) Uninstalled Corel Windows Shell. Reinstalled Corel under custom options and
installed the shell. Did not fix.
6.) Waved my magic wand, did a chant, said a prayer. Did not fix.
I am running Windows 7, 64 bit version of x7.
If any other users have experienced this same problem and was able to fix it, please forward the magic potion to me... it would be much appreciated!
Hello Scott; You can try turning off the fire walls and going to Programs & Features and clicking on the Corel X7 suite and when the pop appears do a repair, and see if that doesn' t help.
Right click on a CPT file and select "open with". If X7 photopaint is in the list, click that. If not, browse to the Corel X7 programs folder and select the photopaint .exe file. In both cases, make sure "always use..." is on before accepting the result.
CPT extensions are assigned to x7 in Windows Explorer (this was done after the second install, to ensure that the proper application association was set). I also did this in PP X7 under tools/options/global/filters/associate.
Bitmap editor does not work.
Thank you for the response. I am unsure what you mean by "turning off fire walls" and going to "Program & Features" and do a repair.
Could you elaborate?
Hello Scott; Go to the Windows Control Panel and select Programs & features and in the next screen select X7, then you should get a chance to repair the program. If you aren't to sure of what's going on you may want to get some help with it.
