    Hi. I have the same problem here with X7. DO i have to uninstall it first or just block the internet? thanks

    1. Paularo says:

      If your corel draw x7 hasn’t been blocked that means if your corel draw is in viewer mode, please uninstall and install it back then block your internet using these 3 methods for best result.

    Thanks Paularo. It’s working better. You resolve my big problem. Bow you.

      Hey Ama, thanks for your confirmation comment. Please tell your friends

  6. Ama says:

    Hi, you explain about 3 steps how to block corel x7. Those are,
    1. Windows Firewall with Advanced Security
    2. Block host file
    3. Allow/Block an app in Windows Firewall Setting
    So, step 1 and 2 are OK. But what is 3? How do I do it? Please explain.

    If I have said that the problem was resolved by my earlier comment, unfortunately still remain the problem.

    1. Paularo says:

      Step 3 is the easiest step. Go to windows firewall, click on allow or block an app … untick all corel draw entries.. that’s it

    hi paul
    i just got the alert too… it says im on the viewer mode.I switched off the internet by the first step mentioned.
    What if i don’t do the other two …what should i be expecting ? Would the viewer mode still be activated ?
    also, am i supposed to follow all 3 steps first and then re-install the corel ? or reinstall first …? sorry im quite ignorant in techy stuff…the last time i messed with this..some DLL files got deleted and i had to reformat my system . so super scared…please help

    1. Paularo says:

      Uninstall first. Install it back. disconnect internet then begin the process.

    2. CEM says:

      1-uninstall corel
      2-block your connection
      3-install corel draw x7
      4-follow the steps
      it’s work me. good luck 😀

    Hi Paul

    I followed ur steps while installing coreldraw 2017 graphics suite ,….n it was working fine . until today it asked me to feed my email address and I recd a mail to authenticate my mail…though after that its working fine but I don’t know why it came if the internet connection was blocked. any clue?

    the last 2 steps were not showing the way it showed in ur steps ,,,


    1. Paularo says:

      The sign in page is normal but just close it, it would pop out once in a while but it wouldn’t affect the activation, if you did it very well.

      You mentioned something was wrong in the last 2 steps? Please explain. Thank you

  11. Oluwafisayo Oyeromade Ogunjimi says:

    Seems your method has been busted, I tried and it didn’t work

    1. Paularo says:

      My method still works 100%. I activated corel draw x7 for someone this week. This method can’t be busted because we have blocked all the ways corel draw gets internet access from the computer. Unless corel draw creates a new way of accessing internet.

        I am trying to reinstall Corel, but it won’t accept my activation code. It says the serial is invalid when generated from the keygen.
        So now Corel is installed, but won’t open.
        I tried blocking the internet connection as you showed above, but it still says that time is up and I have to activate the program.
        Do you have any advice of what to do?
        Thanks in advance

        1. Paularo says:

          Uninstall corel draw totally. Turn off your internet before installing a new corel draw.

          After you insert the activation code, it would show invalid code on corel draw but the next page it would be activated.

          All through the installation, turn off your internet.

          1. kor says:

            Hi again,
            I tried uninstalling completely and blocking internet connection while installing again. Then I did everything that you listed above, but when I started Corel the popup appeared again stating that “time is up” and wanted to activate Corel.
            First I uninstalled the program from “Programs and features” in control panel then I deleted all files and folders containing the word “corel” that I could find when searching in the drive partition where the program was installed.
            Is there anything else that I can do in order to delete completely all traces of Corel on my PC so I can do a clean installation?
            Thanks again

    Hi Paul,

    thanks for your help.

    I have 2 questions.
    I get the message, but still my corel is working. DO I need to reinstall or it is enough to go through with the fix?

    And also I have a problem with saving the host file in notepad. For some reason it says I don’t have a permission.
    How can I do it?


    1. Paularo says:

      You are welcome.

      The solution to your first question is after you get the fair policy message, it takes some days before your corel draw x7 turns to viewers mode which means it has been blocked. So, I will advice you to uninstall your corel draw and re-install then activating it for life using my steps.

      The second question about permissions has already been answered in the post above. Check the step 2 which is #2. Block Windows Host File. You need to give permission to edit the host file and I have already explained how you would do so above.

      Thank you for visiting, nairatips.

  16. Chris says:

    Holla!!! my corel draw X5 cannot save, export, copy, paste or print, please what do i do to solve this issue

    1. Paularo says:

      Please uninstall fully, install again and crack it.

  17. boralu says:

    I can’t save this 2 lines in host file?

    1. Paularo says:

      Follow the steps I shared above to give your user permission to edit and save that file.

  18. Juliana says:

    please help me I was trying to do step 2 but it says i don’t have permission in spite of doing the step 9f the security tab. What should I do?

    1. Paularo says:

      Please follow the steps properly and also remember to untick “READ ME ONLY” in the properties panel.

  19. Juliana says:

    Do you know how can a install and crack corel again.. I have to unistall it but dont know how to reinstall it

    Thank you

    1. Paularo says:

      To install it again, you need to have the windows setup file to start the installation process after that run the installation using typical settings, wait for it to finish installing then run keygen.

  20. Sasa says:

    Is it possible that it manages somehow to revert settings you explained how to change? I did it like 15 or more times and it always works for a week and it manages to connect again and revert to viewer mode.

    1. Paularo says:

      I’m sorry Sasa but once you do all 3 steps well, you won’t need to do it again because I have personally activated more than 10 systems with corel draw x7 and I did it only once, up till today it’s still working.
