It's me again. Have given up thoughts of upgrading to Xara X as it only starts very intermittently.
Have now reloaded Corel Xara 1.5 from CD and same old Xara problem - will not start. Have changed video drivers, removed Xara entry in Registry, tried starting from within 'Find files' facility,
rebooted 1,000 times, wiped hard drive and reinstalled ME and Xara. But message remains "Corel Xara has caused a fault in Xaradraw.dll the programme will now close". There must be something there guys and gals. Is there a Xara programmer available who might be able to sort this as starting problems are not unique to me!
