I'm trying to convert a Quark Xpress document (I have a PC) to a PDF, but Quark does not seem to allow me to save a document that way. Adobe will not recognize any of the Quark documents as well. What is the best way to do this? It should be simple, right?

Quark has a free document converter on their Web site which will convert a QuarkXPress 5 file into a format that can be opened directly by QuarkXPress 10. Basically any QuarkXPress documents older then version 7 can be run through this converter to make them compatible with version 10.
Enter a valid product key. If Quark Xpress doesn't nag you for the key with an automatic dialog box, you will probably find the registration info entry in Preferences. If you have already entered the key, something corrupted the key file, so try entering it again.
this is Quark Express file. So to view this file, you can use it.
You can download a trial version here--http://8.quark.com/evaluation.html
You can create a PDF file from a Quark document using Acrobat. The
desktop version of Acrobat comes with Acrobat Distiller which can
convert the Quark file to PDF.
According to the Adobe Create PDF Online web site (http://createpdf.adobe.com/index.pl),
native Quark (qxd) files do not appear to be supported for online
conversion. However, the service does support PostScript (.ps) files.
If you can save your Quark file as a PostScript file, then you can use
the Create PDF Online service.
I definitively solved this problem. Follow these steps: 1) Install first Quark Xpress 6.1 on a Windows XP PC. 2) Copy the entire directory of installed files (Normally c:\program files\quark) on a pen drive. 3) Install Quark Xpress 6.1 on your Windows 7 PC until the installation stops with 1720 error. 4) Abort the installations, then copy the Quark directory stored on your pendrive in c:\programs x 86 directory overwriting the existing one.
This way Xpress 6.1 works perfectly on a Windows 7 PC. Guaranteed!
in this case try creating a preferences folder under the HDD>>Applications>>quarkXPress 6.x folder and then check the results.
if it still continues then try to downsave the document to version 5 by doing a file>>save as and changing the version to 5 from there
