convert AI to CDR

I need to urgently convert an AI file that won't import into Corel Draw into a CDR file so it can be edited.  If I convert if to a PDF Corel cant cope with it and it shuts the system down.
I do not have illustrator on my machine, therefore I can not export it to an older version either.  
Can some one help me please.

how do you 'convert to pdf'?  If you can 'dumb it down' in Acrobat to a legacy version pdf, corel MIGHT be able to deal with it.

'Print' as pdf and import into corel or print and scan.  Can acrobat save as different file formats?
