Fix : Product Installation Unsuccessful Please Reinstall Error 24 – Corel Photo Paint, CorelDraw etc dead June 1st 2010!

orDear Reader,

I bring to you this fix to the recent global Corel installation unsuccessful error. Some thing that gave us this annoying messagebox. Thanks to Mohd Saqib for the tip off and the fix.


You would be glad to know that we have found the fix to the problem.You need to down load this file extract the files and copy it to the following path on your system.

C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Application Data\Corel\CorelDRAW Graphics Suite X
or try this path….
C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Application Data\Corel\CorelDRAW

Here we are assuming you run windows PC. In case this does not work for you…there are other simple solutions like running the Corel software by changing your system date to any date earlier than 1st, June 2010. Even Corel has confirmed the bug and will issue an update for the users soon.

You may also be interested in the RunAsDate application that can run a particular software in a previous date without affecting other software and the OS.

Update: Some of you have asked about the right place to add the patch in Window Vista.
use this path – Computer/C:/Program Data/Corel/CorelDraw Graphics Suite X4
Thanks to Estee and Saqib for the updates.
