Just installed Corel Family Pack 5 in a Windows 7 64bit system. This is a new clean system. Word Perfect runs fine but I get errors with Quattro Pro. I have found similer threads but not good answer.
The error is as follows:
Microsoft Visual C++ Runtime Library
This application has requested the Runtime to terminate it in an unusual way.
Then nothing happens the program will not run. Have tried uninstalling and reinstalling with no success.
I have found a small but rather odd work around for the issue but don't understand how this work around could possible work. I discovered this by accident. I remembered that the first day I saw Quattro Pro work as I tested it when I installed it.
I then began to think and remembered the file I tested was on a flash drive. So I pulled out the flash drive and found a file and clicked it, everything opened as it should. Could even open the program from the shortcut in the start menu. So I then copied the file to the desktop safely removed the flash drive and tried to open the file and got the same errors again. Replaced the flash drive and all works again.
Decided to try other flash drives even blank ones with no files on them what so ever and lo and behold with a flash drive plugged in Quattro Pro (11) works just fine. Take the flash drive out and it quits again.
I don't quite understand what having a flash drive any flash drive attached would have to do with the program working but it does. It would be great if someone had an answer to this issue. However at least I can use the program with a flash drive plugged in.
Thanks in advance for any replys to this. May be a couple days before I can get back.
