V8 Update Announcement

V8 Update Announcement

We are in process of launching an update stepwise. If you like, you can already install it. 

Please ensure the following:

  • V8.0K must be installed and activated.
  • Check the release notes (see Downloads box) beforehand to read the installation instructions and improvements
  • Internet connection is mandatory during installation. Otherwise many issues will appear.
  • CorelDRAW Graphics Suite SE needs to be registered online before it can be accessed through the Artwork Canvas or CorelDRAW SE desktop icon.
  • No product key will be taken during this update.
  • The V8.0T update is the recently announced V8.1 version

The update process is as follows:

First check your anti-virus settings and put BERNINA folder (C:\Program Files (x86)\BERNINA) into exception/exclusion list so that the V8 update installation will not be blocked. If you don't know how this works, please check the support page of your anti-virus software manufacturer.

Second, download the update V8.0T from the Download area.

Third, to install the update execute the .exe-file and follow the instructions. Leave everything checked as per default. During the Installation you are asked to deinstall CorelDRAW Essentials X6. Please tick the box to remove it as it gets replaced by its successor Version CorelDRAW Graphics Suite SE. When you first start the new Corel or the Artwork canvas in V8 you have to register. For this an active Internet Access is required. When you have completed the registration Corel sends you a confirmation E-Mail, where you need to click on a link to validate your account. Only now you are able to access the artwork canvas. Please note that all Cliparts are now located in CorelCONNECT.
