Question about Quark Academic QuarkXPress 6.1 for PC
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.
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!

I doubt you'd be able to get the old floppy disc version. However perhaps if you contact the company and explain the situation, give them the old key numbers etc, they would send you an install disk (cd) so you can have it running. I would try doing that first. Many companies will assist in that way.

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!
