    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:


    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/

    Regards

    I'll see if that makes any difference.
