Corel painter sketch pad

I hate you Corel painter sketch pad.
I hate that you crash after i fell in love with you.
I hate that i cant find any info on how to fix you.
I hate myself for buying a wacom based on the fact that you came with it.
I hate that the thread that had a potential fix for this problem was on a DA forum that JUST GOT DELETED.


p.s. Since i hate this so much already, anyone want to chip in and hate it with me? Or fix it for me?

I remember working on an awesome piece on Corel Sketchpad when it decided to crash on me. I forgot to save my work and I can't get it back! So yes, I feel your pain! :iconsadtardplz:

Indeed. But I can't help but love it as well because it's so much easier for me to colour some of my pieces with that program. :c

My word of advice, save every minute whilst working on your piece in that program. :nod:

I cannot afford to wait 5 mins (at start up) for every 2mins I spend working in the program- I've figured out how to make some brushes in Photoshop that seem (a tiny bit) like the bushes i use in that one. hopefully that will do for now... -_-

Have you considered trying Gimp? It's free to download though. :nod:

Are your tablet drivers installed? I'm using Corel Painter Essentials 4 with Windows 7. When I tried installing the tablet's drivers from the disc that came with it, CPE would crash on startup, and was basically unusable. Luckily, Windows 7 automatically finds drivers for anything you plug into it, so I'm using those instead of the ones that came with the tablet. Vista does the same, so it might be worth a try.

my tablet works fine- it normally tells me when the driver crashes... but they are working fine do i still have to reinstall them?

I honestly don't know. I shared my story because I thought it might be helpful. I like Corel's stuff, but their programs are weirdly buggy, and something else may be affecting yours.

I have Corel Painter XI, but not sketch pad I'm afraid.

Did you try opening it while holding down the shift key? That usually resets the whole program back to it's default setting if it crashes. It works with Corel Painter XI, so it should work with sketch pad.

I believe you can find a version online and install that one, but you'd probably need some sort of CD key so it would probably be a moot point.

Dolanna Featured By Owner Jun 5, 2011  Professional Traditional Artist
i have to find the cd- that will have a reg key on it.
I considered doing that but people were saying that for some reason not all the one that was downloaded from the cd would delete itself and that when you went to download the new one it wont download correctly. So in a way it wont download the parts that are already there so it would cause conflicts. I dont know how much help downloading it will help after seeing that thread.

Before you download it again, you have to delete the program and it's files entirely from your computer's system. So that means going into your applications/programs folder (sorry I use a Mac instead) and just cleaning out every bit of data that relates to Corel painter sketch pad.
Otherwise the software itself is just going to crash and cause problems.

I did hear that sometimes the driver of your tablet can cause some Corel programs to go haywire. I have no idea why it happens and it's a well known bug to Corel. You could try reinstalling that too if all else fails.

And Corel has released some updates towards some of their softwares that should help patch up such bugs. It should open up automatically when you open the program, or try finding it manually on the Corel website.

Anyway, I wish you luck!

It is just very surprising that they would design such a buggy program. I hope you do hear back from Wacom, Corel, or both.

Corel painter sketch pad- is the only version there is. It crashes thats its error. It has a error window pop up 2 times for less then a nano second and then it crashes. Also the window is blank - its just an empty frame that says error.

It came with intuos 4 wacom tablet. model: ptk-440

Can't help you fix it if you don't post any information whatsoever about what version you have, what error you have, or I don't know... anything else besides the fact that it "crashed"?

From what it looks like just about everyone has this error and it has never been addressed or fixed. It's too bad. Have you tried using Painter or Draw?

100$ bills have a strip of magnetic tape in it --when ever you go through a metal detector they know exactly how much money is on you. I dont think they do the with 1$'s.
