I continue to be amazed that no body has found THE elegant solution I
did. As a matter of fact I am using Quark 4.1 on Window 7, I used it on
(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.
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
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!
This is a version problem. Not sure what version you're using but you're going to have to go at least one version higher and save down. Quark's kind of a pain about this. If you're in 4 and you have a 7 file, you need to save it down from 7 to 6 to 5 to 4. It's not at all easy or convenient.
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
