Error Using Corel Painter Essentials

Asked By 70 points N/A Posted on -

I have downloaded Corel Painter Essentials 4 from the VS X4 Do More panel.

Upon running the program, I got an error saying something that it's damaged or illegally modified:

Corel Painter Essentials 4

This copy of Painter has been damaged or illegally modified. Please reinstall from your original disks.

I tried repairing it using Windows Control Panel, but it seems that Windows couldn't fix it, and it simply removed the program.

So again, I attempted to download Painter 4 Essentials from the Do More download button, but now the download won’t even start. I went to Corel website and found out that Painter 4 Essentials was listed on my registered products. So I went ahead to download the trial version. When I try to run the new download, I'm still getting the same error.

I don’t know why I keep getting this error. Does anyone know how I can get it to work?

3.   ( Before launching your Painter) Open the regedit and search for and delete all the references to Protexis.

Hi Gregory,

                This error is very common with Corel as it becomes very unstable over time, some suggestions may put you in a not so nice place. You can try this step to resolve the issue:

  • Go to HD and then Library then Preferences folder and then delete nTitles Product Licenses IV file. This will not require  you to uninstall or reinstall anything.
