Do another search with Everything.
I'm not sure it would work but create a firewall rule for the corel program blocking inbound and outbound connections.
Is there a messages folder? You can also do a search for messages in Everything. It may be in a different location for X6. Doing a search for Corel may find something in a different location.
For Windows Vista, 7, 8 and 10 users:
- Hold down the Windows and R keys on the keyboard simultaneously
- When the Run box appears, release both keys
- Type: appdata in the Run text box
- Click OK
- Double click on the Roaming folder to open it
- Double click on the Corel Folder
- Highlight the Messages folder and press Delete on your keyboard
I have deleted the Messages folder per your directions. Now let's hope it stays gone! Since the upgrade offer doesn't appear all the time, I might not know for a while if this has done the trick. Thanks!
Ok so this doesn't work either. You know when you start Corel Draw how it says it's "Creating Application Environment"? It is rebuilding that Messages folder. In it (or one of its sub-folders), you will find a file named "Message.policy". Open it and you will see the following:
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
<policylist version="1"><policy type="communication_option" value="opt-in" when="" timestamp="1540742917"/></policylist>
You want to change the "opt-in" to "opt-out" and save the file.
Then change the file permissions so that nobody can write or modify it.
So far this has worked for me when every other suggestion I have see has failed.
To try this yourself, delete the entire Messages folder. Then start Corel Draw and immediately exit it. Go look and you will see a new Messages folder which was just created. Then perform the steps I outline here and do that same test.
