Whenever i try launching Corel Draw on my computer, it gives me an error screen that says : Unable to load CorelDrw.dll. Error Code; 998, same goes for Corel photopaint and the rest of the Corels. I used to use corel Draw x5 until one day, it started showing me the error screen. I uninstalled it, and installed x6 and it did the same thing. I dont know what to do again. All my friend have lost hope on it and i need it badly as i use it for graphical presentations.

If this is a paid, licensed version...you might also try the Corel forums.

Here is an article that explains how to manually remove it: http://corel.force.com/index/articles/en_US/Master_Article/How-to-manually-remove-Corel-Draw-Graphics-Suite-X6. I have had to do similar with my wife's corel tools for some odd reason corel applications like to get corrupted.

CAUTION: The above article states to edit the registry, please make sure that you re-read the article to understand what keys to remove. Removal of the wrong keys could make your computer unstable or unusable. So before doing this I would recommend making backups of important pictures and documents.

Also use ERUNT: http://www.larshederer.homepage.t-online.de/erunt/ to make a back up of your registry prior so restoration can be done safely and easily without reinstalling your OS.
