This issue has occurred on several times in different versions of CorelDraw (Corel X3, Corel X7 and Corel 2018) and the various ways I used in fixing the issues will be discussed in this article later on.

It frustrating when you launch your application to complete your unfinished job and discovered issues which prevents the CorelDraw application from opening.

Though there are different errors you might encounter, in this article I will show you how to fix “No Font Where Found. This application may not have been properly installed” then if you click Okay, you get a “5000 error” before your application closes.

You don’t need to panic, this issue can be corrected with ease, below are various ways you can fix this error.

  • Re-install the Application: This method works on most of all error encountered while working with CorelDraw, though I will recommend you using a third-party uninstaller like Iobit uninstaller, you can get the software from the official site.

Or you uninstall the program manually, once the uninstall is complete, you can install the application and launch again to see if the error is fixed, and if it doesn’t feel free to go through other methods below.

  • Deleting Temporary files: this method works together with the first method stated above, after uninstalling a program its advisable to delete temp files of that same program, though its sometimes challenging deleting these files while using the system.

To locate temp folder hold “Windows + R” for Run, and type %temp% on the text field available then press Okay

Highlight all the files and folder then delete, please always skip the files that displays warning because this may affect the software in use.

Once you’re done, you can launch your program again to see if this fixes the error.

  • Reset the font database: Since it’s a font related issue, its necessary to reset the font database and see if the error will be fixed.

To reset the font database, go to programs on start menu, check for the CorelDraw folder click to open, hold F8 and click on the Corel Font Manager.

Do not release the F8 key, till you get a popup message either to restore the application or font database.

Click the both checkbox and press okay.

Wait for the restore to complete, and see if the issue is fixed, if yes, congratulations and if no, you have one more option left below.

  • Rename the V2.1 folder: since the V2.1 folder controls the fonts and other actions in Corel draw, it necessary to always rename it once you have any font related error in coreldraw.

The folder is located on appData, a folder that contains all application data installed on the computer, the V2.1 path is folder: “C:\Users\<username>\AppData\Roaming\Corel\Databases\V2.1\”

The username should be replaced with your system username.

You can as well locate the V2.1 folder by pressing “Windows + R” to Run, type %appdata% and press okay.


On the appData folder that displays, click to open the Roaming folder, once its open locate the Corel folder to open as well.

Next open the Databases folder then rename the V2.1 folder to something else or add number or text to it.

After renaming the folder go to your CorelDraw application and click to open, this time a fresh V2.1 folder will be created, and your application will launch to its interface without any error.

Note: any of this method works the last one is the most effective way to fix No font where found in CorelDraw, additionally you can do a system restore to see if it fixes the error you’re having.
