CorelDRAW Home & Student Suite X8 - Launch issues on Microsoft Surface Devices

Summary:

CorelDRAW Home & Student Suite X8 applications fail to launch on Microsoft Surface devices using device specific color profiles.

Workaround:

Assign a different color profile, such as IEC 61966-2.1 Default RGB colour space - sRGB (sRGB IEC 61966-2.1).

1.  Open the Color Management dialog from Control Panel ( or type Color Management in Search window).

4.  In Windows Explorer, navigate to C:\Windows\System32\spool\drivers\color.

5.  Create a new folder, titled ‘SurfaceProfiles’

6.  Locate the files: surface-srgb and surface-srgb-enhanced. Highlight both files and then cut/paste (or drag/drop) them into the new folder (C:\Windows\System32\spool\drivers\color\SurfaceProfiles).

7.  Close the Color Management dialog.

8.  CorelDRAW Home & Student Suite X8 applications should now successfully launch.
