Hello Phil1923; AAAAAAAAAAAhhhhhhhhh the old shell game, "Now you See It and Now You Don't" ( BEER has got to help!!!)
there's no problem under Windows 32 bits. I removed and installed again the Shell Extensions, and CPT thumbnails works fine

The Shell Extension is required for you to view thumbnails for CPT and CDR files.
If you remove it you won't see any previews. The shell extension adds this functionality to windows to View these files.
So... basically you shouldn't panic. Just re-install and your thumbnails will be back.
Adrian Juman:So... basically you shouldn't panic.
But you still drink the beers.
Let not the one who says it can't be done interrupt the one who is doing it.
Graewerld:But you still drink the beers.
Yes, it is important to drink the beers... and get some more for later.
...And if everything crashes, go and get a GERMAN beer! (a good crystal wheat one not only freezes your brain, it clears all errors with one sip...)

Everyone is invited...
I had exactly the same problem. I should not have uninstalled X6.
I uninstalled X4 and reinstalled it. Same problem, the cpt thumbnails were not restored.
I decided to reinstall the X6 Trial version and that restored everything.
I have Windows 7, 64 bit and just realized that X6 handles large files much better in PhotoPaint.
X4 can't handle them very well, some layers don't even show up on the screen.
So I will buy the upgrade.
This thread was very helpful, thanks to all who contributed.
I work in a sign shop and we do large format digital prints. I often have to print at 96x300 inches. I see a huge difference between X6 and X4.
I`'m use to piling stuff in the playing field, not using Layers like Photoshop. X4 will at times give me a white screen instead of showing me the objects
I am working with. I have to play with the zoom tool and find the right zoom factor to see them (weird, I know). Or, some objects will only be marqueed and
I can`t see them at all. X6 is a workhorse. Works like a charm. No more issues. I decided to buy the upgrade today and am very happy with it.
Reading on what you guys are finding out I am going to postpone upgrading to a 64 bit
I'll buy some beer instead Cheers.
Of course some of us do not want Windows to display thumbnails of Coreldraw images. I recall a time or two when I had to do a bit of nosing about to figure out how to uninstall the thumbnail view shell extension.
