Error while installing CorelDraw X5

Asked By 10 points N/A Posted on -

Hi TechyV,

I have already shared the thread about an error while installing SP3 for the first time. Now I thought of reinstalling it by Run as Administrator. I am still getting an Error 2203 message (I counted 5 errors, same message, same numbers, and different files, image 1). There is no other choice other than clicking on OK and then it resumed installing. The same message had popped up for a couple of times, every time I clicked on OK to continue. At the end of installation it showed me the fatal error window showed image 2

In the Help Menu about window displays the proper version. Both CorelDRAW and Photo-Paint are running normally.

I am using Microsoft Windows 7 Pro 64 bit with hardware configuration Processor: Intel Core i7 CPU Q 720, RAM: 4.00 GB, Virtual Memory: 7.98 GB, NVIDIA GeForce GT 320M, Adapter RAM: 1.00 GB


Error 2203:.Database:C:WindowsInstaller5005d29.ipi.Cannot open database file.

System error-2147287035

Thanks in advance.

Error while installing CorelDraw X5


Hello, Jaycepierce!

There are two reasons that may have caused your problem.

Did you use antivirus software?

What is the name of the software you are using?

If you are using a non-licensed antivirus for your PC, you are prone to attacks and threats. So make sure your PC is free from virus. Reinstall your operating system and make sure there is no threat.

Another possible reason for your problem is the graphic card of your computer. Make sure that your graphic card is capable for CorelDRAW.

Update all drivers and then try again after updating everything.

Hope that you will not encounter this problem again.

If you have other issues, just visit this site again.

Have a good day.

Error while installing CorelDraw X5


Though you have completed installing CorelDraw Graphics Suite X5, the final screen shows different fatal error status on the components installed. Check again if your computer is fully compatible with the software. CorelDraw Graphics Suite X5 supports 32-bit and 64-bit Windows XP, Windows Vista, and Windows 7. Also, it requires that the operating system is installed with the latest Service Pack.

So, since you are using Windows 7, you should try updating your operating system to Service Pack 1. This is the latest and only Service Pack update for Microsoft Windows 7. According to a post in Softpedia in October 2013, Microsoft has no plans of releasing a second Service Pack for Microsoft Windows 7. They said Microsoft will just let Windows 7 die when the time comes.

The reason is that they want the users to migrate to their modern platform. To install the latest Service Pack for Windows 7, download from Windows 7 SP1 (KB976932). Once Service Pack 1 is installed, uninstall and then reinstall the Service Pack 3 update for CorelDraw Graphics Suite X5. Verify on the last screen if you still get fatal errors on the installation.

If you still get fatal errors even if you already updated Windows 7 to Service Pack 1, try downloading the Service Pack 3 update again from CorelDraw Graphics Suite X5 SP3 Download.
