I have a Mac mini with a 300 gig HD and 2 gigs of RAM. I have to load CorelDraw and purchased parallels Desktop 6 so i can load Windows.. I just learned about Winebottler and wondered if anyone has tried to use CorelDraw X4 with Winebottler? Does it work?

I used it several months ago and found
it to be unstable to unusable. I was using
it with Internet Explorer. I tried it with IE
version 6 and 7.

Its supposed to work well with IE but that
wasn't my experience. If you want to try
it I would recommend you make a fresh
Clone of your HD then download it and
give it a try. If its as unstable as mine was
simply clone back your system without
Winebotttler.

Or do whatever you like. I'd be interested
to know if it works for you.

I'd be interested to hear how you got on - I would like to run it also - might resort to WinXp under Virtual Box if I really have to!

I'd be happy to accept any pointer (idiot proof) - I tried to use wineskin to install Coreldraw X5 - but it all ends in tears and a crash Sad
