First, create a clean Wine prefix and set architecture to x86
Install the following software using winetricks:
gdiplus vb6run msxml4 ie8
Set Wine Compatibility to Windows 2000 and disable internet connection before running the setup.
Run setup; install application normally.
It will install, but hang at "Publishing Product Information". At this point, you can open a terminal and use 'wineserver -k' to kill the installation process.
Inside the CorelDRAW X3 CD, navigate to CGS13 folder, and extract the contents of EN.MSI
(You will have to use a software which extracts MSI files while keeping subfolders structure. This is possible in Windows using a software called "LessMSI", which doesn't seem to run in wine. Any other alternative is possible, the only requirement being that the extracted files are placed in the subdirectory structure defined by the MSI.)
Inside the extracted folder, there will be a folder called "Languages"
This folder should be placed inside the folder .wine/drive_c/Program Files/Corel/CorelDRAW Graphics Suite 13/
Create a 'file.reg' file with the following contents:
Run regedit in a linux terminal.
Import the created file.reg file
Now you can run either CorelDRAW or CorelPHOTO-Paint by navigating to .wine/drive_c/Program Files/Corel/CorelDRAW Graphics Suite 13/Programs/ and running CorelDRW.exe or CorelPP.exe
Be reminded that this software requires registration. Since online registration doesn't seem to work, you will have to run the software with internet connection disabled and use the "Phone Corel" option instead. Once registered, you can run the program with internet connection enabled without any problems.
