CorelDraw 11 crashes on Core i7 CPU


I just had to reinstall CorelDraw 11 on a relatively new machine with an Intel Core i7 CPU, running under 64 bit Windows 7. I know this is an unusual scenario, but I also know that a lot of people still use older CorelDraw versions, so I thought I’d share a problem and its solution:

When moving (dragging with the mouse) objects, CorelDraw immediately crashes. The solution, it seems, is to turn two options off: Go into “Tools -> Options”, then to “Display”, then uncheck the options “interrupt refresh”, “refresh manually”, and “use offscreen image” (I hope these terms are correct; I use the German version and had to guess while translating back into English).
