I created a batch file with the following:
msiexec /i "CorelDRAW Graphics Suite 12.msi" ENLANG=1 SERIALNUMBER=DR12XXX-#######-XXX /QR

::Patch must be installed separately from MSI, thanks to Corel...)
MSIEXEc.exe /p "%~DP0CGS12SP1LMP.msp" REINSTALLMODE=omus REINSTALL=ALL REBOOT=RS /QR

::Make Updater manual, hide Eula dialog
reg import "NoEula_NoUpdater.reg"



"NoEula_NoUpdater.reg" contains the following:
Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00
;Make updater manual
[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\InstallShield\Update Service\Scheduler]
"Status"=dword:00000004
;"Sleep"=dword:0000003c

;stop CorelDraw from calling updater at every launch
[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Corel\CorelDRAW\12.0]
"UpdateOption"=dword:00000001

;don't show EULA
[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\SOFTWARE\Corel\CorelDRAW\12.0]
"ShowEULA"=dword:00000000

Fot the administrative installation, you need an corporate key. You can get it from the Corel Support, if you got 2 or more licenses...

ISScript must be installed on the workstation. To install it either call isscript.msi or install with setup.exe.

Setup.exe waits until the MSI installation has finished if paramter /w is used.

In source files a folder exist for several languages e. g. German or French. They contain a Transform e.g. DE.mst. This transform can be used to display the installation dialogs in your language.

However to select the language for the installed product use the properties:

BPLANG=1
DELANG=1
ENLANG=1
ESLANG=1
FRLANG=1
ITLANG=1
NLLANG=1

in your command line.

I had to install only Corel Capture so i used this command line (dialogs in english, product installation in german):
setup.exe /w /L1033 /v"DELANG=1 ADDLOCAL=CaptureProgramFiles,CaptureHelpFiles /qr"

All you need to do is a setup /a (admin installation) and then follow the instructions here to either modify the MSI file or create a transform file (my preferred method).

Command Line
In our enviroment its very handy that the client machines aren't automaticaly updated. Therefore you can add the following handy property to the msi command line.

MSIEXEC /i "<Path to MSI File>\CorelDRAW Graphics Suite 12.msi" <UI Language Component> =1 UPDATESERVICE=0

Note: Build 12.0.0.536 or higher of CorelDRAW Graphics Suite 12 must be used in order to perform this operation. For more info see this link.

If you have NoFileMRU enabled, the Corel applications will crash (and launch the Corel Automated Recovery Manager, if enabled) whenever the Corel Open/Save dialog is displayed. The only workaround seems to be to disable NoFileMRU, as Corel support refused to admit it was a problem with their software and simply said they don't support this policy option.

I have manage to deploy Corel Graphics Suite 12 via GPO by using the following steps.

1) Create an administrative installation point by running setup /a

2) Edit the msi and a row to the Property Table called ENLANG with a value of 1 (if you are wanting to install a different language change this property to the language you want i.e FRLANG for French)

3) [I am now not sure this step is required. I did this prior to adding the property above and it still didn't install till I added the property. I would suggest adding the property and try to do the install if you get an error when you try to run one of the programs about UI language invalid then do this step.]
Go through each of the features listed and set all the ones that corrospond to the language you requre to 1.

That should be all you need to do to successfully deploy Corel Graphics Suite 12 via GPO.

The are a couple of other this you can do. The Suite comes with a Clipart CD and a Photos CD. I copied these CDs to our network and modified the msi to point to the network location. I copied the CDs to the following location J:\Apps\Corel\Clipart and J:\Apps\Corel\Photos and then made the following changes:

1) Add two rows to the Property Table:
ClipartDir = J:\Apps\Corel\Clipart
PhotosDir = J:\Apps\Corel\Photos

2) Edit the following registy entires changing their valuses to the corrosponding Property:

HKLM\SOFTWARE\Corel\Media\Corel GRAPHICS 12 Clipart (Disk 2)\Path = [ClipartDir]

HKLM\SOFTWARE\Corel\Media\Corel GRAPHICS 12 Photos (Disk 3)\Path = [PhotosDir]

By default only admins can add fonts using "Bitstream Font Navigator". Also, Without the following perms changes, non-admin will not see all fonts in the Fonts folder in Corel applications.

The following CMD batch file will give Power users Full control (no such thing as "change in the registry) to the required registry keys. Download SetACL.exe from http://setacl.sourceforge.net/ and place it in the same folder as this CMD batch file.

---- FixPerms.CMD --- Start ----
::create HKCR\.fng key (can't change perms on keys that do not exists!)
REG ADD HKCR\.fng
REG ADD HKCR\.CPT
REG ADD HKCR\.CSP
REG ADD HKCR\.fng
REG ADD HKCR\FontNav.GroupExtension

::Add full perms to a registry key for 2 groups
::Hint: there is no such thing as a "Change" permission in the registry
%~DP0SetACL.exe -on "HKLM\System\CurrentControlSet\Control\MediaProperties\PrivateProperties\Joystick\Winmm" -ot reg -actn ace -ace "n:power users;p:full" -actn ace -ace "n:users;p:full"
