View Full Version : Corel Draw 8 page setup problem

I'm using Corel Draw 8 (yeah I know it is way old, but works for me - most of the time).

I have just discovered that if I select menu|format|page setup..., the page setup dialog comes up very briefly and then the whole app just closes - no message, nothing. This under WinXP Home with XP2 .

I don't use Corel Draw very much these days, so it may be that this is the first time I have tried this under Win XP.

Google gave me nothing, and the Corel website has nothing useful about Version 8.
I've tried uninstalling/re-installing - made no difference. About... gives me version 8.369. There may well have been patches/updates, but they have disappeared into the mists of time.

Any ideas, anyone?

Thanks Metla. Tried that after I'd posted - made no difference. I've also seen some stuff that says CorelDraw8 is basically not supported under XP, so it looks like I might be SOOL, and have just been lucky that it has worked so far.
