Hi all, I am planning to buy CorelDRAW Graphics Suite X4 and I saw this Home & Student Edition on a local store and it's a lot cheaper than the standard version. My question is what are the difference between these two versions of coreldraw? Are there features/capabilities available on the standard version that are not present on the home & student edition? Thanks.

There are a few main differences.

1) You have to be a student.
2) You may NOT use it for commercial work.
3) No printed manuals or support is included.

The H&S version has just been released into "select markets."

The items I have been informed are different:
--less "extra" content -- much less clip art.
--not eligible for upgrade
--strictly enforced: absolutely no "commercial use." A message "NOT FOR COMMERCIAL USE" is on screen all the time and the word is that Corel will take steps to ensure this is followed.
-License includes three computers WITHIN THE SAME HOUSEHOLD.

Otherwise it is supposed to be complete -- even includes VBA at this point.

Hopefully Gérard will step in with a more definitive answer

Foster --- first time ever I get to call you out!!! ;-)  The poster is referring to the just released HOME and student version, a quite different animal to the "Education" version. Here it is on some dealers shelves at $99 Canadian (sale priced.) It is only available in "select markets" according to Gérard's posts in "the other place."

Paul,

Yes, I realized that after I posted. I just have a feeling that most users
will still want to use it commercially and many of the same rules apply as
you mentioned in an earlier post.

I appreciate the replies guys. Thank you all Yes

If they are serious about "For non-commercial use only", then they should make it easy to upgrade to a commercial version for a reasonable fee.  For example, i might do some graphics for hobby restoration of bicycles.  If I find that it's possible to sell additional copies of the work on ebay, then I would naturally want to upgrade to the commercial version.  Corel should consider making it easy for us to do this for the net-difference in price.

Hi.

It's also cheaper because the corel doesn't include vba in this version, which is expensive to license.

John,
 
That was true for earlier versions, but not for X4. VBA is included with every copy in every flavor.

I also have been trying to understand the limitations of the X4 Home and Student version. I have phoned Corel twice and have received information that is different to that suggested in this forum.

The H & S has:

  • Less digital content than the full version, clipart, photos, special fonts, etc.
  • Has the same functionality as the full version.
  • Can be used to upgrade to a newer version.
  • Can not be used for comercial work.
  • Is limited to being installed on up to 3 computers in the same home.
  • Does not require user to be a student.

Unfortunately this information is not included on the package or documentation included on the DVD.
