I upgraded a clients pc from Win95 to Win2k a few months back. Everything has been going great except for thier Corel Draw 3.0 program. It runs perfectly, and they can make changes to their old files, but cannot save the changes anywhere. I have tried floppy as well as formatting a secondary drive to be Fat32; no luck.
The exact error message is:
Error writiing "Path\filename".cdr file.
The strange thing is that it will export into the other available formats no problem.
The client is extremely PC illiterate and scared senseless of upgrading to another software package.
Any help greatly recieved.
I cross posted in the what I thought was the Apps/Graphics/ area, but it eneded up in Web/Graphics - http://www.experts-exchange.com/Web/Graphics/Q_21167692.html

Thanks

Hi!
I have found this:

Corel Draw 3.0 and 4.0
When you attempt to save a file, the error "Not enough disk space" or "Error writing <filename> file" might appear. To resolve this, select None, 1K, or 2K, in the Image Header list.

on this page: http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx?scid=kb;en-us;Q142644

It's Readme file for WinNT 4.0, but the sollution might work on all NT platforms.

Perfect.
"Nail" "Head"
Thanks for finding that for me.
Ended up having to choose "none", but since neither I non the client know what the Image Header is for and that it has not appeared to reduce any functionality; everyone is happy.
Best Regards

Whippy :)

Thanks for the A grade.

In Corel Draw 7 this is the explanation of Image Header:

An optional bitmap image that is created when you save a CorelDRAW file or export it in .EPS format. If you include an image header, you can see a representation of the file contents in programs such as Corel Ventura Publisher and Aldus PageMaker.
