Question about QuarkXPress

1 Answer


The entire error message will not fit here. I have these errors constantly and Quark Tech help was NO help!
There is no one thing that triggers it. I could simply open a file and try to extend a rule and it crashes. Move a box, highlight text, text won't stop highlighting, this is just the tip of the iceberg. I've replaced the preference file and re-installed the application.
Would this stop if I went up to 7.0 or the new OS system?
Thanks Karen

    I have had innumerable crashes with some variation of KERN_PROTECTION_FAILURE on the venerable mac's I use at my office (forced to use).  They seem to be at random times, but are often when I am on Safari.  I do some maintenance such as with utility.  I have not been able to pin down when they happen.  I use many different macs including laptops and have used these since 2003  -  I have had these random crashes on every mac in our office.  Ugh.

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!
