If you see this error….

If you see this error like I did in the dialog below… especially when running CorelDRAW after a Windows update – you may be able to fix with this file.
Download, and extract all files to desktop, and read instructions inside.
This file installs interface components that some macro authors use. If you don’t have any problems… then don’t use it. 🙂

    May not be applicable to Design Base. But I get Runtime Errors when trying to launch on X6. May be an issue here on my end but will try on another system before I do a full report.

    Have you downloaded the latest version of Design Base? Earlier versions were for CorelDRAW X3-X5 only.

    Yes Foster. The latest Version. I do have issues here because of a little modification I was doing. So it's probably an isolated issue. I will however try on another system that has X6 installed and if it still happens I'll send you a report.
