I am installing a new computer to replace my old one. I have installed CorelDraw X3 Graphics Suite on the new computer but when I try and run CorelDraw I get the message:
The UI Language registration list is invalid.
If I try to run the CorelDraw X3 Graphics Suite CD1 and reinstall/modify/fix the problem I get a message that says “There is no language pack available”. I can uninstall the program via Windows XP Add/Remove but installing again just gives me the same error messages. I cannot find any help on this via Google or in Corel’s website.
I have checked the Regional Language Settings in Control Panel and cannot find anything weird or wrong. I have tried a few changes but nothing seemed to help.
I am running Windows XP Pro Service Pack 2 on a brand new computer from Dell (Optiplex 745).
I found someone else having the exact same problem...you may want to look here:
I'm really stumped at this point...I really don't know how to help in this case. The link I gave was the best I could find that is similar to your issue. I don't know if the following will work...but you might want to try doing an image install of your CorelDraw X3 CD installation disk directly onto the hard drive. This involves using the expand command (if you have this on your version of Windows) if the CorelDraw CD has its own proprietary installers built in. This way doing a mirror install might prevent the language UI issues.
However I'm reading that this issue with the Language Pack is something that CorelDraw is aware of but hasn't been able to find a fix. I was able to install my copy fine on my computer...no issues. I hope this doesn't happen when I have to install again myself. But this issue is scary because it proves that software may not always do as required when it comes to installing. I recently purchased Microsoft Office Outlook 2007 upgrade. When I installed the upgrade on my laptop...the program freezes without fail on initialization...and I've been using Outlook 2003 successfully for years. So I lost Outlook on my laptop. When I tried the upgrade on my desktop system...it worked like a charm. Something about installing on a laptop or desktop could be an issue you might want to look into as well.
I don't know what kind of Dell system you're getting. It sounds like a laptop, right? If so...you may want to uninstall your CorelDraw X3 completely from the computer...and manually delete all traces of CorelDraw from the Windows Registry. Anything with the word Corel has to be wiped. Then try running Windows in Safe Mode with the CD support enabled and try installing CorelDRAW X3 that way. Reboot and see what happens.
can you confirm what the text of the file "volinfo.txt" in the root folder of your CD includes? It might help get you an answer.
Here is what the volinfo.txt contains:
