    I'm running Windows XP in Parallels. Out of the blue, I can't open Corel Draw 12 anymore. I get this message: "Valid workspace file not found at the path specified. End element was missinge the character '>'. " I have done a search on Corel's site and Microsoft's and not found this. Did a Google search and nothing came up. I have uninstalled Corel 3 times and re-installed it, still, I get this message. I don't know how to do a re-install of Windows XP or a way to use my install disk to repair my Windows installation, which from a local retailer, is what they are telling me I will probably have to do. Has anyone else had this error message or know what I can do so that I can use this program again?
