I have Xara Designer Pro X 19, I'm using CMYK color model, then exporting file as Adobe Illustrator .ai or .eps, but when I (or the printing company) open the file in Adobe Illustrator, the colors are still showing up as RGB. I don't want to purchase AI to convert the colors. Thanks for any help.

Try exporting as PDF and use the "Commercial Printing" settings As far as I can see the colours are exported in pure CMYK.
Exporting as a AI/EPS resulted in a totally empty file with me. But PDF is ok.
