As I indicated, I am a long time computer user and I have tried everything on that site. I still can't install my program and I don't want to be charged for something that I not only did on my own, but didn't work any better this time.

I have corel installed on my XP machine and it is working fine, although that machine is considerably slower than this one. So why don't you just refund my money - my membership has already been cancelled - and I will live with what I have. It appears that Windows 7 is the culprit and I truly don't think there is anything I can do to make it work again and I am tired of being so frustrated with it.

Then it just seems this version of Corel Draw X3 is not compatible with Windows 7.

However, these guys managed to have it working on Windows 7 SP2 ===>

Please keep me posted.

As I requested, just refund my money - according to Microsoft, the mentioned service pack does not exist for Windows 7 and I am in no mood to mess with it - I installed an older version of corel and will just be happy with it. I guess the possibility exists that I just could not find that service pack, but no problem cause I no longer need it.
