Corel and BERNINA software

Corel Home & Student edition: 

Corel deliberately has made it so that Home & Student X6 will not work when any other version of CorelDRAW X6 is installed on the PC. 

If you install the software in a specific order, everything runs and lives happily on the same PC but, Corel Home and Student edition will never work with BERNINA V7 because Corel did not package the necessary components in that version so that it could work with BERNINA. 

So, if you do the following on a PC that doesn’t have the BERNINA or Corel Home and Student installed:

  1. Install Corel Home and Student edition
  2. Install BERNINA V7 

BERNINA V7 will work with CorelDRAW Essentials X6 that is installed with BERNINA software.

 If the customer has a system in which Corel Home and Student edition and BERNINA V7 is installed and Home and Student doesn’t work do the following:

  1. Uninstall CorelDRAW Essentials X6
  2. Uninstall BERNINA V7
  3. Reinstall BERNINA V7 including CorelDRAW Essentials X6

 Then BERNINA V7 will run with the installed CorelDRAW Essential X6 and Home and Student will also run, but will not interface with BERNINA.

 The reason that the components needed for Home and Student edition to work with BERNINA V7 is so Corel can reduce the price of Home and Student. It is not a full CorelDRAW X6 product.

    I don't have any version of Corel Draw, but still cannot load the CorelDraw that came with the Version 7 EditorPlus software. Submitted a support ticket in hopes this can be resolved.

    I have installed Version 7 but the Corel 6 and the embroidery software do not communicate. Whenever I hit the artwork button, I get a message that Corel 6 has not been installed. However, I can go to Corel 6 in my programs. I have uninstalled & reinstalled twice w/o success.

    I tried unsucessfully to activate my upgrade to V8 (purchased yesterday). I kept getting desloader not responding which I then had to cancel several times, unaware that I was using up my installs. I am using Windows 10 64 version. Please contact me at ASAP with recommendations.
