HELP  I killed a virus on my computer and then went to open Corel I got the error message, cant find the file setup.msi.  My setup disc is missing I have a back up disc and the program cant find Setup.msi.  My Corel 3x Suite does not open.  Can someone send setup. msi to me and is that a way to correct that problem?  Anyone have a solution to this problem, because I cant open my 3x.

Check replies to your other post made earlier. Also, if running on Vista, make sure that you have "permission" (Administrative) to install.

Corel ROCKS !

I'm running XP, IE, and foxfire.  Someone sent me an email(thanks) and told me how to download the setup.msi file, which I did and I rebooted my computer.  I again tried to open x3 and still got the following msg  "The path"CorelDraw Graphics Suite X3 CD-ROMT"
cann0t be found.  Verify that you have access
to this location and try again, or try to find the
installation package "Setup.msi" in a folder from
which you can install the product CorelDraw graphics suite x3."

These questions always smack of "I don't have a legal copy now I'm screwed". Not that this is the case but it does impact willingness to support.

C:\Program Files\Corel\CorelDRAW Graphics Suite X3 Setup Files

See if there is a folder like that. I can't remember X3 file structure but X4 does that.

In there you should find all the required files.

I purachase my copy at a going out of business sale of compusa.  I followed your instructions and found the folder and this is what it says now. "The file "Coreldraw graphics suite x3 setup files\cgs13\setup.msi is not a valid installation package for the product coreldraw graphics suite x3.  try to find the installation package "setup.msi" in a folder from which you can install corel draw graphics suite x3" Do you think the virus that I killed could have corrupted the file?  Because I could not open IE and other programs.  I still cant open thunderbird email.

should be here C:\Program Files\Corel\CorelDRAW Graphics Suite X3 Setup Files\CGS13

I've seen this with the ATI stuff where you have to click each package to get it to load.

There is seldom quick answers for this stuff, if you are in deep trouble download the X4 trial while you sort it out.

There was 18 folders clicked each and still got the same error message.Does this seem like it is hopeless?  So I can download the trial x4 to finish what I was working on?  How long will I have use of the trail and what is the limitations?  Also is the trail on this website?  A lot of questions :)  I really appreciate your help, THANKS.

Do you know the name of the virus you caught ? How did you kill it ? What AV and firewall do you have ? I have a feeling that there is more damage than you realize. I was hit with the "Packet.Generic.200" trojan a couple of weeks ago. Took a week recovering, transferring data and wiping the "C" drive clean...and then reinstalling everything.

I don't know the name of the virus, I used a program from roadrunner my service provider.  Don't scare me with having to wiping the hard drive clean, been there and done that, and with over a million files I really do want to think about that.  Tell where I can down load the trail x4 and how long is it good for?

Sorry if it sounds like I'm scaring you. No the intention. The fact that you're making this post means that something is still working. Go to microsoft.com and check the FAQ's and troubleshooting links and see what they have to say about setup.msi.
 
...and dump the included "protection" from the ISP or add something good like NAV Internet Security 2009 and a good firewall. (are you on dial-up ?)
 
Here is the link to the X4 trial:

One of my client's got caught by a drive-by or USB (after a business
trip to China) virus (VBS trojan). It would not let him install or
update quite a few programs. Apparently Avast was able to remove it and
restore normal functionality. (strangely, he COULD install Avast; quite
a few other programs would not install--even such things as drivers. Not
sure what the difference was.)

And equally puzzling how a VBS trojan could get on his system as I do
not know of any applications his rather fundamental business system has
that would have VBS. All he has on it is the Open Office Suite, a couple
of Willy's viewers, Adobe Reader, AVG Antivirus, and, root of most
problems, Internet Explorer and Outlook Express (even after all that I
STILL can't convince him to switch to Firefox and Thunderbird!)

If you have had a virus attack don't leave it to one AV and hope it works.

I use Avira, the free version and I'm really happy with it. It doesn't interfere with the windows universe.

But if I've had an attack, and that is very rare, then I run an online tool from someone else as well to be double sure. (I haven't needed to do this for ages so you need to Google and find such a tool. You could try http://security.symantec.com/sscv6/WelcomePage.asp and if you get an ID of the virus look here  http://www.symantec.com/norton/security_response/removaltools.jsp (can't make that link)

Again I want to thank you for the time you have taken to pass on your knownledge to me.  I have downloaded x4 and I will use this to finish somethings I was working on.  I will have to get back to trying to correct the problems with x3 later.

Can you tell me if an image created in x4 still have the white frame around it when you import it into another documant?  If yes how can I get rid of it while I'm creating the image.  Also what is the best resolution to save an image for the internet?

Thank you for the information, later I will try it.  I have to use x4 to finish somethings I;m working on.  But you guys on this forum are the greatest, it is really nice to find people that will take the time to try to help people with small or large problems.  For all of us I say again THANK.

Is this as PDF? If so the only current method is to change the page size.
