So I wiped my laptop recently and went to reinstall Corel Draw X3 from the disc and it says 'error reading setup initialization file'. :confused:

Is there any way around this? Is there anywhere to download a copy of X3 and I can just put in my serial number?

Any help is appreciated! Don't really fancy shelling out 400 for a copy of X5!

Thanks in advance

You might try cleaning the CD with a mild dish detergent and water. It could be
dirt or a scratch stopping it from reading.
Barring that, you can download the software from cnet and at some point it will
ask you for a serial number, which you already have

I've tried cleaning the disc, but no change.

Everytime I try to download X3 from cnet it just starts downloading X5!?

I sent you a PM. Corel doesn't make it easy, but I found their FTP
site for previous version. It's under Patches & Updates.
( I guess it wouldn't be under "Downdates" ..)
