How to install CorelDraw X3 on Windows 10

I buy in the past CorelDraw X3. I know, there are many other newer versions but for me, it’s enough. After update Windows from 7 to 10, everything works ok. BUT when I install fresh version Windows 10 and try to install CorelDraw X3 I got errors.
The question occurs: Is there a way to install CorelDraw X3 on Windows 10? Yes! answer below.

Firstly let’s assume you have installation files in “E:\CDX3”.

Just run CMD in administrator mode. How? Click on Start menu, start typing cmd, Right-click on Command Prompt and Run as Administrator, then type:


and press enter on the keyboard.

Usually that installation harm Windows Start Menu, that’s why you need to go through the steps:

  1. Open regedit.exe (click on start menu and type regedit.exe and run)
  2. Right-click on HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT and select permissions
  3. Add “All Application Packages” with Read permission (All Application Packages was missing)

That is!
Have wonderful day 🙂
