Question about QuarkXPress Passport 4.1 (112283) for PC
It worked fine on my windows 98 setup, but can it be modified to work on XP?
I still wonder why nobody else has discovered the following, I used Quark 4 on XP. I used it on Vista; Read on:
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 when MS had not yet decided they had fonts (less than) superior to Adobe. My original install required burning a floppy (good luck with that today) for the registration. I never bought an external floppy. 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 to the executable onto the desktop on every new platform. It still runs fine on this 64bit Window 7. I am running Windows Home and not Professional no Ultimate in emulation mode. It 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. If you bust this, please return your registry code.
If a matter of interest, I have a friend who worked on the prerelease 7 and reported they didn't care and he still needles the programmers. He discovered multiple forms of Windows .DLLs that can operate for 64, 32 and 16 bit applications. I don't know if this was the answer but Quark 4 worked on my Vista which was crippleware at best and will probably work on 8 which is be rewritten for LAN and WAN business environments. Hopefully MS can keep their mitts off procedures that work. They have a poor record of that. Look to Source Forge for programmers who might start up a new platform and dig away at the sandy MS foundation.

QuarkXPress is not certified to work on windows XP, you have to upgrade to QuarkXPress 7 or 8 in order to work with it on XP
