Emulation
This app works with: SheepShaver, Basilisk II,

QuarkXpress had been the industry standard for desktop publishing for 10 years by the time version 4 was released. QuarkXpress version 4 brought into the program, interface improvements such as pop-up tools, tabbed dialog boxes and for the 1st time Bézier curve drawing tools, allowing the user to set type along an irregular path, or create clipping paths to make any image into a cut-out directly in QuarkXpress. The version 4.1 upgrade added support for PDF and XML.

Compatibility
Architecture: 68k PPC x86 (Windows)

Your French seems to be really good however. I have not seen this French series myself. But what I have read about it is excellent. But, I don't like watching War films except someones... Wink

Ah, you speak French, now ?

Hélas non, je parle très peu français. I've recently watched the TV series "un village français", all six seasons. I found the actors, their dialog, the plot and setting brilliant. My French comprehension also picked up a little because of it. I really enjoyed this series and will likely watch it again before long. C'est la guerre. Wink

Thanks again, MacTouch.

QuarkXPress Passport version 6 Preview? Sure, add it to the QXP 6 Passport page, please.

Also, if you ever come across the 6.1 update for QXP 6, please add that also.
Its last known official download filename was "qxpress61updater.hqx" (80.5 MB). The Wayback Machine mentions it but does not have copies backed up.

We have the 6.5 and 6.5.2 updaters, but they require the missing 6.1 update...

There's a forum topic about this, here.

Thanks for pointing that, Mike. I have realized (& tested) this version & finally, it only works with PPC. Sorry... I've fixed that on the page thus.

[EDIT] Just in case of, I have also Quark XPress Passport version 6 in a preview release, but I don't know if it would be useful to upload it on the site.

I've added a preinstalled French version 4 of XPress with a dongle patch.

Thank you, MacTouch. Tho' I think the dongle patch is PPC only (at least, I haven't come across a 68k patch of the same as yet).

Gotcha MTT. I'm glad there are at least a few people who remember Quark XPress 3/4/5 fondly... and haven't become Adobe fanboys Smile

Well, I lost my love of Adobe when they introduced CC, and our entire newspaper is up the shit because of changes in colour handling from InDesignCC 13 to v. 14 (I think they were the versions from memory). A complete dog's breakfast, with no possibility to downgrade... ACK!

   there might have some hiccups on the old DL:s when the new files was added by me

Yes, qxp-4-update-41.sit appears to have gone AWOL - its needed for the 4.11 update on the standard install set. I can re-up it later, tho'.

Unless it renamed (or the same as) as the new file "QuarkXPress_4.10_Update.sit (11.10 MB). In which case some simple re-ordering of DL numbers will suffice.
[Edit] its not, so I restored what was removed for the standard 4.1 update (28+ MBs)

Thanks for the 4&5 Passport updates, SwedeBear.

1st: there might have some hiccups on the old DL:s when the new files was added by me
2nd: no guarantee on anything uploaded here by me. Please delete if unusable!
3rd: there's duplicates on some of the 'help' files included in each application archive
4th: many application archives (all?) are copied installations; ie no installation possible/needed

@SwedeBear: This all looks very promising. There are a lot more in your archive that wasn't available here originally. That you had it running on PPC hardware is something I wasn't able to do. So please archive it here. No urgency tho', too close to the silly season.

by SwedeBear - 2014, December 13 - 10:00pm

Hi SwedeBear. Is this a 68k, PPC or FAT install version of Passport, US release? Does it require a hardware dongle? i.e; Have you installed QXP 4 Passport and have it working without issue or requiring the presence of a hardware dongle or software crack for the dongle (same question applies to your recent post in the QXP 5 promotional page)?

When this page was 1st created, there was only a copy of Passport version 4 here (I don't recall if it was uploaded internally or external only), but there were major issues trying to get it to work. Visit the last page of this topic and scroll to the bottom of the page then work your way back upwards and read through a few of those old posts to get an idea of what was tried...

Been and read the earlier lines of this topic. What I can tell you now before I dig out the files is that I've had the QXP 4 running with a 'dongle emulator' on real PPC hardware. Wether these files will run on real 68k/emulated 68k/PPC I can't tell. I prepared up these files where anyone can try them out for themself, if interested. It's been a while since I had any real 68k/PPC up and running I'm afraid.
I can give more info as soon as the stuff surfaces here but from memory I do believe v5 didn't run with dongle, at least…

Edit: a quick glance in my records shows only QXP Passport 4.x and suitable [k]s.

Edit 2: a list over what I came up with digging;

   I have no idea regarding the "Save document" issue under Sheepshaver?

I'll remove that notice, as its unlikely to affect others (been meaning to for ages). I had QXP 3.x installed on the same Sheep install. Double-clicking a version 4 document was launching QXP 3 instead of QXP 4, hence the error (and initially I didn't notice it was version 3 that was launching & giving the error message). Rebuilding the Mac's desktop database cured the issue.

I have no idea regarding the "Save document" issue under Sheepshaver? Maybe it looks at files modified dates and judges that it has changed since then? If you know you haven't made a change, you can safely click No (or Command-N).

Have you got a printer selected in Chooser?

I usually set up a PSPrinter set to create postscript files (for eventual PDF conversion). Because all the printer settings are saved within each document, this may be a factor in this instance?!

The second download link, for the 4.0 -> 4.1 updater, seems to be broken, and I can't find an updater file anywhere else online. Would someone kindly help? The main download link and the 4.1 -> 4.1.1 updater link both work just fine.

@themacmeister: I don't imagine that to be much fun at all. I hadn't considered a RAM limitation... FAT 32 yes, 2 GB file size limit yes. Something to look forward to here, for me I see. I'll be giving it a go myself shortly.

I used to have this BII build running under '98 OK before I went to Win2k then XP, so I know it works. Just having to set up '98 again tho'... I know it can be done, but... I'm digging deep to find the inner maso c h i s t in me Wink <-- have to misspell masoch*st like that because the N*zi who programmed up this Wiki deems it to be spam/swearing/blaspheming whatever and won't let it through Sad

Will let you know in a couple of days as to how I get on.

PS. if you do get somewhere with it, the BII I put up for you has the BII keyboard re-mapped (Only 2 of the keys unless you've changed them). The remapped keys are Right Shift = Mac "Command" key and the Right Control key = Mac "Option" key. I'd remapped those back when I was using this port on '98 as the Windows "Alt" and "Windows" keys were known problems under BII and '98 at the time... I never did change them back - and they'd still be useful if you do get it up and running under '98.

@MikeTomTom, it may be ****ing good progress, but try launching BasiliskII with networking enabled -- good grief! Locking up every time at the point where the beachball spins at startup. I have given up at this point, will reformat the hard drive, reassemble the computer (were you aware that Win98 doesn't like 1.25GB RAM? live and learn!) and reformat it back to NTFS.

The networking worked fine BTW, as I transferred a few files back from the XBOX again... I started taking screenshots, but once it locked up, it was a moot point. I tried all I could to get it working, it may even work with a third-party (ie: not built in crap) NIC. I have a few 8139C&D 10/100 NICs, so might give those a try, if I ever recover... Smile

PS. Only your build actually STARTED, my build didn't even open a name in Task Manager -- sigh. I would try my version but it wouldn't help you... You mentioned somewhere about an interminable wait at startup -- that may have been it...

MikeTomTom's picture
by MikeTomTom - 2011, January 22 - 12:18pm

@themacmeister: thats ****ing good progress! Much faster than I could get to having it up and running. Must do this myself when I can. Until then; Will wait for the juicy bits Smile

UPDATE: Win98SE with unofficial Service Pack 2, and all USB updates and drivers installed. 8GB Imation Nano USB thumb drive working great (@ USB 2.0-like speeds).

More news as it comes to hand!

Protocol 7's picture
by Protocol 7 - 2011, January 21 - 3:53pm

Ah ok. I probably missed that bit. I guess it could run differently under 98. Worth trying certainly.

MikeTomTom's picture
by MikeTomTom - 2011, January 21 - 2:37pm

@Protocol 7: Better for what? I already run it on both Win2k & XP Wink Anyhoo the desire to test out Lauri Pesonen's BII port on Win 9.x here is not for speed, stability or ethernet. Its purely to see if QXP4 running on Lauri's BII works on Win9x or not. Its already established that it doesn't work (reliably enough) on Windows Win2k or XP, inclusive. Not that it particularly matters all that much if it does run OK on Win9x, other than from out of satisfying a curiosity.

Protocol 7's picture
by Protocol 7 - 2011, January 21 - 1:11pm

I think you might be better running it under Windows 2000 if you want to go legacy. I had a sweet BII setup on it back in the day. I only had one computer and no DSL so I didn't use the ethernet function. Just dialup and the scsi emulation (for burning to my Plextor CDRW).

I dropped 98 as soon as 2000 went release candidate. It was slower on my 64MB RAM Pentium 200MMX, but the stability more than made up for it. That and I could play DVDs without the whole system freezing up.

Internet main hard disk is dying, keep managing to recover it, but that can only last so long... Will back up the work/fonts installed, and probably swap it for a larger drive very soon.

Also, got two other call-outs for computer problems, will get to Win98 trial in time.

MikeTomTom's picture
by MikeTomTom - 2011, January 21 - 9:11am

@themacmeister: Hmm... can't say that I've actually tried running this in Win98 compatibility mode under XP. This BII port is written entirely in assembly code and optimized for both the Win9x an NT branches of Windows. So I can't fathom how that would go from where I'm sitting...

Only know that how Win 9x displays the Win desktop differs somewhat from NT's branch of the Win OS and this perhaps explains why that manual shows text in the QXP4 demo (its running on the Win9x branch of the OS). - My theory until proven otherwise Wink

Glad to hear your dad is OK, too.

themacmeister's picture
by themacmeister - 2011, January 21 - 4:33am

All clear on the Dad front.

Home now, and will give this Win98 proposition some serious thought (PS - can you run BII in compatibility mode for Win98? under XP?) or doesn't this have the same effect Smile

MikeTomTom's picture
by MikeTomTom - 2011, January 21 - 12:44am

Sharing .HFV files with either Basilisk II or SheepShaver. Pitfalls to watch for are; (a) .HFV drives must be HFS formatted for use with earlier than Mac OS 8.1 systems, not HFS+ (b) for an OS to work on either, it has to be a universal install and the SheepShaver needs to use an "Old World" ROM to run a pre-OS 8.5 system.
Sharing of Non-OS HFS formatted secondary drives between the two are the least problematic.

Sounds like you're a bit busy too, so when you have the time is fine by me.

Hope your dad is OK

themacmeister's picture
by themacmeister - 2011, January 20 - 4:16am

No, I don't have sheepshaver installed -- if the HFV files can be used in both, I can easily install it, and give it a try!

I will start accumulating the Win98 drivers I need for my AMD system (did I mention it was an AMD AthlonXP?). Shouldn't have any issues, and I have a spare hard drive I can dedicate to Win98SE (without touching WinXP).

I have a local guys computer to repair here - power failure while updating IE8 (ouch!), so will probably not get onto this until the weekend (gotta drive my Dad to hospital and back tomorrow).

PS. I found QXP4 alpha 18, was wondering if that worked differently? Probably PPC only -- sigh

MikeTomTom's picture
by MikeTomTom - 2011, January 19 - 11:41am

@themacmeister: If you have the time and the inclination, please do. Its going to be a while before I can get around to it and it would be interesting to see if QXP4 behaves better on Win9x...

Do you also have SheepShaver set up on your usual PC? I'd like to know if the PPC install of QXP4 works OK for you on this. I wasn't able to run it on SheepShaver, although it installed OK. I copied over my 68k install to SheepShaver and that ran perfectly! I may revisit this and reinstall the PPC version again just to make sure I didn't bork it the first time around.

themacmeister's picture
by themacmeister - 2011, January 19 - 5:50am

Would you like me to give it a try on mine? I have 98SE here...

PS. It is only a 'spare' computer, so no problems there. Luckily mine is a "name brand" motherboard, and all the drivers are still online Smile

MikeTomTom's picture
by MikeTomTom - 2011, January 19 - 3:06am

I had Win98SE installed on mine (a 2.4GHz P4), later I installed Win2k and then XP onto it. Win98 was good & fast on the P4. - XP wasn't too slow on it either. Lauri's Basilisk II ran fine on Win98, networking is the same as in XP. I first started using Basilisk II when the PC I had at the time was an older P166, The Mac emulation was usable, but it wasn't until I got the P4 where it began to run as fast (or faster) as original Quadra Mac hardware.

I think that I've kept all on the drivers for the P4, but finding the time to get it back together with Win98 is another story. Mightn't be for a while.

themacmeister's picture
by themacmeister - 2011, January 19 - 12:48am

I reckon Win98 would FLY on an old 2.4-3.0GHz P4...

Would it be reliable enough, and would you find the drivers for the P4??

How is networking under 98? Would you be able to do the same as with XP?

MikeTomTom's picture
by MikeTomTom - 2011, January 18 - 1:29pm

@themacmeister: No, it not an old build AFA that particular port goes, and its perhaps not too suprising that he's getting some text there either. To get those screenshots he's running Lauri's BII port on Windows ME (Millennium Edition) the final branch from Windows 95, not an NT variant... Maybe I should install Windows 98 on an old P4 I have sitting around... and run BII on that.

Its a great manual tho'. I've had it for years and didn't know it was still easily available. It was typed up and prepared using AppleWorks and printed to PDF using PrintToPDF and dedicated entirely to Lauri's Windows BII port Smile

On a strangely creepy note - Quark XPress 4.1 Demo seen running on the same build Basilisk II as you have Laughing out loud

http://www.emaculation.com/b2manual/BasiliskII_Manual.pdf

EDIT: This is probably a way older build, without network fixes... still intriguing tho!
