Add me to the list for this issue. I am a *very* long term user of Ulead PhotoImpact. I believe my first version (v2.0?) came as bundled freeware with a scanner I bought in the late 90's.
Anyway, I get the same, "To use some of the templates and images in Easy Palette and Component Designer, you my need to download and install the content packs."
I downloaded X3 from the net as well. Installed on a new, clean machine.
I can use a some of the textures others fail. The 2D & 3D frame sets function, however none of the 'classic' style frames work, and throw the above error. I don't use component designer much, but I check a couple of my favorite items and they failed as above.
Help? Ideas? I can't see re-installing, if I have a bugger-up download.
