In case of a Windows machine Navigate to C Drive>>Program files>>QuarkXPress folder and create a new folder by the name Preferences with P in upper case.

For Mac HDD>>Applications>>QuarkXPress folder and create a new folder by the name Preferences with P in upper case.

Now launch QuarkXPress and it should work

The application preferences file is damaged. Please remove it and re-launch QuarkExpress [297] Where is the preferences file located? (Version 9, Windows 7)


The preferences file will be in the User\AppData folder.
C:\Users\ your user name\AppData\ Local\Quark\QuarkXPress 7 is the location in Vista with version 7 and it should have a similar location in Windows 7.

C:\Users\ your user name\AppData\ Local\Quark\QuarkXPress 9 is likely. (AppData has 3 folders - Local, Local Low and Roaming.)

You should not delete the folder. Instead rename it. Right click on the folder and select Rename. Then name it
old_QuarkXPress 9.

This could be a hidden file. If you click Start and then enter Show hidden folders. Then put the bullet on Show hidden files, folders and drives. Then click Apply and OK.

If moving the AppData location to another folder doesn't solve the problem, check if there is a Preferences file in the Program Files folder (
C:\ Program Files\ Quark\ QuarkXPress 7.x for the old version.) If the new version is built for the 64-bit OS, it might be in the x64 Program File folder. Again rename the file if it is in that directory.

I hope this helps.

You should be able to find a quark folder containing the preference file at username/library/preferences/quark. Move this folder to another location like your desktop and look for any other file that says quark within the preferences folder. After your sure you got everything moved from the preferences that's quark related start up quark, the program should recreate the preference files you moved to another location and start successfully. Now just delete the old preference files you moved to your desktop.

Trash your Quark Prefs and relaunch. You may need to confirm the library has not gone corrupt.

Problem opening quarkxpress on g4 mac


The first place to look is your permissions. Open your utilities folder in your applications folder and launch **** utility. Click on your hard drive icon and click the repair disk permissions button. It may take a few moments to run. That might solve your problem.

If that does not solve the problem. Open library/preferences/Quark. Move the pref' doc in that folder onto you desktop (don't trash yet) try relaunching the app. If still not working trash the pref' and try again.

If all that fails I'm afraid you'll have to re-install the app'
