Is there any way to install CorelDRAW X3 on Windows 10?
Thanks in advance
Be very careful with the "msi" method described. I did exactly that on a Windows 10 Home laptop and am now having to start over from scratch, reloading the operating system because of all the damage. I suspect it may work on the Windows 10 Pro edition, but I can tell you it will disable the Start menu, Cortana and other items on a Home edition. I would have saved money and time by simply upgrading to the latest version of CorelDraw. Wish I had now.
I have tried this in December 2020 on W10 Pro. At first it looked like it had worked. Coreldraw and Photopaint were working fine. Then I discovered that the Windows 'Photos' app was not working. After a reboot, the start menu was also not working. Possibly the problems are due to more recently installed updates to W10. Anyway, I ended up having to reinstall W10 and dump the Coreldraw.
Yeah, I finally caved and just bought the CorelDRAW Essentials package. With all the time I spent, I should have just spent the $100 to start with. I don't need everything that the full CorelDRAW does, so for me Essentials is fine. It's just really frustrating not to be able to run perfectly suitable software that I've bought and paid for.
Yes very annoying. I am only an occasional user, but the bits that I use when I do are not in the 'Essentials'.I've been using the Coreldraw suite since 1991 but for the little that I use it I just cannot justify the cost now of an upgrade to the 2020 version or a monthly subscription. Hey ho.
