11 Free Tutorials to Prevent CorelDRAW From Crashing

10 Free Tutorials to Prevent CorelDRAW From CrashingBefore I get into the details of crashing, I must stress that each situation is different. What is a perfect answer in one situation may have absolutely no effect in another situation. While I will provide a number of potential solutions, it could be that there simply isn’t an answer for you.

Some crashes are definitely due to flaws in the software. More often than not, they are preventable and curable. Some can be caused by bad hardware. If your hard drive or memory chips are failing, it will cause a lot of problems in your system. This is only solved by replacing the problematic hardware.

Now that I have all the fine print out of the way, I’ll provide you with a list of previous blog posts and articles that could be the solution you need. Without knowing details of your specific issue, I can’t tell you which one is the solution for you.

    A friend gave me a Dell computer that was set up as a gaming computer for one of his sons. I downloaded CorelDraw Graphics Suite 11 (from the applications disc) I opened a “new graphic” page and was able to create text, change fonts, make shapes… but when I went to add color, contour, envelope, etc., I get a “CorelDraw Has Stopped Working” box and it shuts down CorelDraw. I have this exact copy of CorelDraw on a laptop (since 2009) and have never encountered this issue. I am hoping that there may be a solution! I am basically computer illiterate, so there’s a VERY good chance that I’m overlooking a simple fix! LOL! Any help would be awesome!

    Thanks in advance!

      CorelDRAW 11 was released more than 15 years ago! The simple fix is to use a newer version that is designed to work on current operating systems.
