View Full Version : Resolved Braille Installation Help

When I downloaded the software, a window popped up saying that the folder" Programs/(x86)Corel/Corel suite x4/draw/gms does not exist...do you want to create it? (that may not be worded exactly). When I launch Corel x4, select tools/run macros, the braille program is not found.

I've tried downloading to my Windows 8.1 computer and now my laptop which is running Win 8. In neither one can I find "braille.gms".
I don't like the search in Win 8 but here's what I;m doing: I pull the "flyout" from the right side of my display, select the "search" icon>type in "braille.gms"<select "files" ....but windows finds nothing.
I also can't find it in the program files>Corel>draw>gms folder.
Thanks :)

Just tried downloading again. This time, it simply presented the folder " c:\Program Files (x86)\Corel\CorelDRAW Graphics Suite X4\PROGRAMS\Draw\GMS" and did not ask if I wanted to create it. I clicked finish, restarted Corel x4, selected tools>macros>run macro>macros in, and it's still not there. I also searched (x86)program files>Corel>draw>GMS and there is no braille. Is it possible that Win 8.1 is blocking it? If so, there is no pop up or warning which says so. I am stumped.

The installer tries to find your GMS folder, but you have the flexibility to select the proper folder:

Try installing it here, since you're using X4:
C:\Users\YourName\AppData\Roaming\Corel\CorelDRAW Graphics Suite X4\User Draw\GMS\

If anyone else reads this thread and is using Windows 7+ and X5 or X6:
C:\Users\YourName\AppData\Roaming\Corel\CorelDRAW Graphics Suite X6\Draw\GMS

Of course, you will have to replace YourName with your actual user account name.
I will have to update the installer in the next couple weeks find this path automatically, rather than the old GMS folder in Program Files.

Hope this helps.

Thanks Aaron,
I just did that. Restarted Corel, looked in the macro box and it still isn't there.

Just to be sure, I created an installation video:

Let me know if this helps.

Thanks Aaron,

I'm still missing something. I tried plugging in my "computer name" (shown in "settings">"PC info") in the "your name" designation and I also tried plugging in the "user name" designated to Corelx4 . I'm still going to "tools">"Macros">"run macro">"macros in" and there's no braille in the dropdown list.

C:\Users\Signworks\AppData\Roaming\Corel\CorelDRAW Graphics Suite X4\User Draw\GMS\ .......the name of my computer

C:\Users\WayneWebb\AppData\Roaming\Corel\CorelDRAW Graphics Suite X4\User Draw\GMS\ ....the user account name of my computer

C:\Users\WayneWebb\AppData\Roaming\Corel\CorelDRAW Graphics Suite X4\User Draw\GMS\ ....my user name in Corel x4

Here's one of the folders I saved it in but it's empty.

Thanks for helping me resolve the issue.
Download the setup file again, it will now allow you to install to an alternate folder.

I found this little macro gizmo yesterday called "InstallGMS.exe".....still would not work. http://corelvba.com/index.php?pages=util_1
Then I tried downloading your program again last night after seeing your last message....still would not work.
Finally I tried again with your changes and the "InstallGMS.exe" , dragged and dropped the file onto it, clicked, "install" and it worked.
I don't know why I had so much trouble, but it works now.
Thanks for your patience
