Is Corel Paint 8 compatible with Win 7? It is an older program and I suspect a compatibility issue.

After the crash, I found a mention of MFC42 by looking at the System Event Log. (Windows-7 is reluctant to tell you the error messages directly.)

I dug up a pre-Windows-7/Vista version of MFC42.DLL from another app on my computer, copied it into the same folder as the Corel executable, and voila, Photo-Paint now works. Yay
