    Excel not opennig xls files quickly while Corel Photo-Paint is running

    Whenever I have Corel Photo Paint X8 running, Microsoft Excel 2016 takes a very long time to open when I double click on an xls file; but it will open eventually. If I close Corel Photo Paint while waiting, Excel opens immediately. This does not apply for xlsx files (as opposed to xls). When Excel is already running, xls files are also openned immediately.

    I made this video demonstrating the behaviour.

    I already tried reinstalling both Corel Draw Graphics Suite and Office 2016 to no avail.
    The Windows task manager shows me that Excel is in fact not running until I see its green splash screen.
    Any ideas how to get to the bottom of this? Thanks!

    This issue is apparently known to Corel. I now got the response from their support:

    "Currently, the only workaround I can offer is to have Excel opened before you start to work in Photo-Paint X8."

    Let's wait if this is fixed with a future version...
