I'm not sure whether this is a Corel Draw problem or a windowsXP but I suspect that it's Corel Draw not handling the XP environment.

When in Corel Draw 8.0 and I'm about to print (which works OK), if I go into printer properties (from the print dialog box) I get a message along the lines of "Corel Draw has encountered a problem and needs to close" which it then duly does.

It, of course, offers to let Microsoft know about this but the information it does identify about the failure is as follows...
AppName: coreldrw.exe
AppVer: 8.369.0.0
ModName: user32.dll
ModVer: 5.1.2600.0
Offset: 0000e528

It doesn't show this problem under Win98 and it seems to fail whether it is a local or a network printer and whether it is the HP or the Epson.

Has anyone come across anything like this?

Hiya

I assume other things can print okay.

Have you tried reinstalling the program?

Just seen this, in the FAQ at the ftp site of Corel:

Q When I click on Tools, Options, or Layout, Page Setup, an Invalid Page Fault occurs.
A This error is related to the color of the 3D Objects in the Windows Display Appearance settings. Click on Start, Settings, Control Panel, double-click Display, click on the Appearance
tab. In the Item list, select 3D Objects at the top. Change its color to one of the Windows Basic colors. This issue was addressed in the DR8RevB.exe updated available on the Corel FTP site

may/may not help.

When you got to help | About in Corel, does it say if its a Revision B?

The DR8RevB.exe is here:

ftp://ftp.corel.com/pub/CorelDRAW/DRAW8Suite/update_to_build_369/
