    Install CorelDRAW Graphics Suite X7 on wine?

    Does anyone know how to install CorelDRAW Graphics Suite X7 on wine?
    I use the program everyday and it would be useful to not have to switch between computers/operating systems or use remote desktop to a Windows computer.

    I have tried installing CorelDRAW Graphics Suite X7 but only got this:

    Second - Fourth try I got this error:

    And when quitting the CorelDRAW "SetupARP" process (which wasn't quitting by itself) I got this error:

    Thanks in advance. Any help would be appreciated.

    See here. That is a very old version, but you never know your luck. May still work. Have you considered installing Windows as a virtual machine and running it in that?

    Have you looked for/considered a Linux alternative?

    Which is a very old version? Wine of CorelDRAW?

    Yes, I have considered a virtual machine, but since my computer has less RAM then it is supposed to (only 2GB) because of a RAM card failure, I am not sure it would run that well.

    I do am currently learning to use GIMP, but I would appreciate being able to use CorelDRAW until I get more used to GIMP or find something better. The real reason I use CorelDRAW is for its vector capabilities.

    Looked at Blender? It's in the repositories.

    I use Blender all the time for video edited and animations. Didn't realize it could edit images though, I'll have to research it. I am learning to use GIMP fairly well, in fact I have been using it to create textures for Minetest, but it's nice to know I can use one program, Blender, for all of it. If you have any good links about editing pictures in Blender that would be great.

    Have you tried Inkscape?

    Yes, I have tried Inkscape. In fact I still have it installed. I don't really like its interface though, and haven't found (or looked for that matter) any easily accessible tutorials on how to use it. If there are some good tutorials available, I would probably try and use it.

    I have been a CorelDraw user since 1992 and I have been using Linux for about 4 years now and I have never been able to install Draw in WINE, it always fails. I have read somewhere that the portable version works but I have not tried that, since I could not find one that wasn't a crack. I quit dual-booting and VirtualBox. Now I run two computers with a KVM switch.
