    Ok my main computer now is an iMac G3 with the specs below since I don't need a computer for anything more then basic internet browsing nowadays. I found my old Corel Draw 8 discs and installed them using the classical Mac OS 9.2.2. The system requirements are very low and only requires 32 MBs of memory. I installed everything and it went good but when I open it and try to make a new project, it gives me an error that states I have no memory. I tried rebooting, running it without any other open apps, everything, but it still says I don't have enough memory when I infact have way more than needed?

    Any help?

    I'm assuming you mean you're iMac is running Mac OS 9.2.2 rather than running OS X and running Corel Draw using the classic environment...

    What I first of all would do is click the Apple Menu and choose About This Macintosh to see how much memory other applications are using

    Take a look here --> http://rsbweb.nih.gov/ij/docs/install/images/about.gif

    Once you've established you have enough free memory (doesn't matter if its actual or virtual)

    Next thing I would do is find Corel Draw and Get Info on it. Once the get info window appears, give it some more memory

    Click the drop down that says 'General Information' shown here --> http://www.rit.edu/its/services/desktop_support/mac/images/9GetInfoGeneral.jpg

    And choose Memory shown here -->

    Give it 3-4MB More (3000KB or 4000KB). Close the Info window and try opening the app again.

    If it still doesn't work, open up your Hard Disk --> System Folder --> Preferences, and find Corel Draw preferences and put them in the trash. Empty the trash to make sure Corel Draw creates a new one when it opens. Then try opening the app again.

    Let us know how you get on, perhaps we can think of something else to try.
