Had same issue, even tried the "Advanced Uninstall" from a 3rd party software. After tying to reinstall, fresh, but NO reboot, it came up normally, but I didn't try to do anything with it. instead, I rebooted, came back in, found TWO install dates, 1/10/2014 and 2/11/2014 in the ...[logged in account]\appdata\local\Corell_corporation folder. deleted the old one, 1/10/2014 and edited the newer USER.CONFIG file with Notepad and found the "Last Project Name" value, and made the space between <value></value> to be nothing...much like it I typed. The program, no mater how hard one might try, seems to want to hang onto that last bit of info, so, start the program again, Use the FILE menu and delete any old projects, **THEN** IMPORT the project again. Should work for others as well, preferably before going through all the uninstall, reinstall, clear, wipe nonsense , might even work without ever uninstalling if you wipe the CONFIG file empty on the value of "Last Project" as NULL..... blank as above.
