I have, and have had, a download copy of Corel Draw X4 that I purchased some time ago. It's a legit copy that has worked fine up until about a month ago. Now every time I open Corel Draw it tells me that I "must now activate this product". I select the online activation option and everything goes OK but it's irritating. How do I get it to stop this and why did it start doing this right out of the blue?

Contact Corel. If you have a legal key they should be able to help you. I had a similar problem with a retail copy. It was my PC date. Some how it was set for 2012 and that was messing things up. I had to uninstall, correct the date then reinstall and now all is good.

Are you getting an Error 24?

I don't think I had an "error 24" but I'm not real sure what that is. How would I know for sure?

Guess I"ll have to contact Corel, thanks for the suggestion.
