Yes, make sure that there are enough virtual memory.
For starters 2.5 times your current RAM-size.

I have experience from systems that won't run graphics software
unless I create a huge pagefile.

For performance, make sure that the pagefile is placed on the drive
which is least used.

CorelDraw 4.0 Had a bug that did that to you.. (checks available memory in a incorrect way) there is (was) an upgrade available, however when i ran CDR 4.0, it wasnt downloadable, only obtainable from fores support.

You might have a modern environment with all sorts of high-tech equipment, but what makes it worthwhile is how you seamlessly bring together the presentation with audio, video and lighting. The ATEN Control System provides integrated control and system automation.

Thanx, I will try the memory idea.
Any ideas why 7.0b tells me it is the wrong OS ? Is this true?
Anyone got the 4.0 upgrade?

Increasing the memory did not work.
Therefor I close the question in favour of J2.
