Hello Friends, my beloved XP computer died. I am ordering a win.10 operating computer and must order a more current Corel Draw. I have decided on 2017 as it seems everyone hates 2019 and I think 17 will be more compatible with my other things. I have 2 lasers that are "old" technology but will run on win. 10.
My question: I have 2000+ files that I created in X3. I know 2017 will not open them so I am putting X3 on a win. 7 home premium 64 bit computer. I just need to be able to open them and then recreate in 2017.
I am not a graphic artist but I do create customer logos for lasering into recognition awards and such. X3 does all and more then I require but I need to upgrade.
Does anyone have information that may help me avoid problems in my upgrading? Thank you in advance.
Go for 2018 stable and open X3 files
Yes, and beware of Ebay and the like. B&H Photo is reputable.
Would be real nice if Corel got their crap together with v2019 so we could just move on to it and use it CONFIDENTLY like v2018, V2017 etc instead... but oh well... one can only wait so long. : /
Whoa, I didn't realize 2018 opened X3. Thank you. I will look into it today.

I'm with Chris. If it can open your X3 files, then 2018, all the way!
Thank you for all your responses. I will be choosing the Corel Draw 2018. Hopefully it will work with the win 10 et all.
Right now for a 2-3 week temp fix, my computer repairman got x3 and my oldest laser engraver running on my win 7 computer so my business is up and running again. If I cannot get 10 to open my x3 files, at least I know what they are and can recreate them.
