Click desktop icon to open Corel Draw & pop-up window says, "Valid work space file not found at the path specified. Everything was working fine just 2 hrs prior. All other programs open - even Photo Paint.
THANK YOU for any suggestions. Sandy

Sandy you might try opening it again. Dismiss the warning. Create a new job and save it as anything to the normal location. Close Corel Draw and reopen it.

It sounds like you may have opened up something direct from a website and not saved the file or from a disk and do not have the disk in. The above should clear it.

I've shut down computer twice & restarted. Can not get Corel program to start.
I'll go mess around with it some more & let you know if I have any luck. Thanks!

It sounds like your workspace settings file has become corrupted (or deleted). Search for it (.cwf extension).

If you fail to find a valid one, close Corel, press and hold <F8>, and start Corel... accept the default workspace when prompted.

YIPPEE! Thanks so much. The F8 trick was a success! I love this forum! Sandy
