windows installer won't install Corel Draw X3 patch for SP1 and SP2. the error it gives is that the patch can't be installed by the installer because the program is missing (which it is not) or that the upgrade patch may upgrade a different version of the program. It says to verify that I have the program on my computer and that I have the correct patch.
I had to remove Corel X3 from my computer and re-install it. After that, I couldn't get the patch installed and it needs that because I have MS Sp1, 2, and 3 on my computer. Also, I have the ONLY patches available anymore for Corel X3.
Any Ideas on how to get this installed? thank you in advance and anticipation of some help!

Corel makes a lot of software & several have X3 in their name. Care to tell us which one you're working with? Also, are you running XP SP3? If you are, SP1 & SP2 don't need to be mentioned.

Hi riider... I started a reply but lost power via power serge... I'll try again:
First, thank you for answering my post.
CGSX3SP1 is an upgrade file containing many fixes, upgrades and drivers for Corel X3 suite. The program was introduced for sale around 1994 or so. Way before Windows XP made SP1, SP2, and SP3. So, it has nothing to do with those Windows upgrades. The thing cost me over $600. and I really don't have the money to purchase a new version at this time so I would like to install these old files so the program will work properly. Trouble is, windows installer doesn't seem to be able to install it as you can see by the error it gave in my first post. Any ideas?.

HI anyone who reads this and has the same problem... Found out Corel draw comes pre-installed with the Hot fix and their sp1 and sp2 on version
That's why windows installer would not install it. Because I have that version!
