Quark XPress 4.1

I recently purchased a new computer with Windows Vista on it...now my Quark Xpress 4.1 isn't compatible. Is there a fix to this? Or am I going to have to purchase a new version of Quark? Thank you!

    Return the new computer and tell them you can't accept Vista. Quark 4.1 will run on Windows 7 - 64 if you follow my instructions. Don't waste your life on Vista as it is crippleware

Problem with Quark QuarkXPress
How can I install my Quark 7 on my new Windows 7? All I get is 'QuarkXpress 7 requires that your computer is running Windows XP or Windows 2003. Help!

Solutions (2) Start the Windows "Program Compatibility Wizard".
Tell it that you want to install a Windows XP application.
Tell it that the software to be installed is on a CD-ROM.


I continue to be amazed that no body has found THE elegant solution I did. As a matter of fact I am using Quark 4 on Window 7, I used it on Vista (where it performed better than Vista) and on XP back at least to 98 or perhaps 95. My original install required burning a floppy (good luck with that today) for the registration. At some point, I discovered it was truly portable and simply copied the installed Quark directory to a new location (anywhere) on each new system. I dragged out a shortcut onto the desktop to the executable on every new platform. It still runs fine on this 64bit Window 7. Has not blown up yet. Something I wish I could say about other software. The only rub I found is that MS monkeyed about with associations (which worked fine in XP & Vista) and I have yet to be able to set.QXDs to Quark when I even set .QXTs to Quark.Windows 7 automatically served up In-Design as being the first (default) association in my programs list. Something I did not accept. I even tried to rewrite the registry in an attempt to make it work.
In fact, if you look into the .DLLs under Windows, you may find versions of the same .DLL that can run under 64, 32 and 16 bit environments. I suspect it will work under Windows 8 if MS doesn't leave working procedures ALONE!

Quark 4 is too old to run. They are on version 8 now. I know it will run on XP.

Mac computer says registration code is wrong on my 6.1 quark xpress. I've checked it several times and it is correct and it's not loaded on another computer. Also the computer I'm trying to load it to...


not possible to bypass the code . if you spent money on buying Quark... you NEED to get it working properly. You should mail quark or take the faulty product back to the shop you got it from.

Error 1720. Trying to install Quark 6.1 on Windows 7


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!

I have a Quark XPress 6.1 system on my AppleMac for my work as a journalist. For some reason, completely out of the blue, when I try to click on a page on my desktop to see on screen I get the clock...


It could be that your quark preferences have corrupted, I would go to your users folder then go into the library folder, then the preferences folder and then the quark folder within the quark folder there should be a file called "XPress Preferences.prf" move this to the trash. (Do not empty the trash if it does not work you can replace the file back into the preference folder) When you open quark next it will recreate the preference file and hopefully that will sort it out. Please note your preferences will be back to default and you will need to reset them. Hope this helps
