Guides on emulating older applications

QuarkXPress is a computer application for creating and editing complex page layouts in a WYSIWYG environment.
A QuarkXPress document contains text and graphics boxes. The boxes can be reshaped, layered, and given varying levels of transparency and text alignment.

What’s New in QuarkXPress 6.0:
• Layout spaces
• Mac OS X support (Mac only)
• Windows XP support (PC only)
• Multiple Undo
• Table enhancements
• Layers enhancements
• Printing enhancements
• Hyperlinks enhancements
• Web Features enhancements
• Full-resolution preview
• New menu selections
• Changes to avenue.quark and XML Import Quark XTensions software

The manual above is for QX5. Also on the CD image are some pdf doc files about QX6.

Architecture: PPC x86 (Windows)

For Mac OS X 10.2 or newer up to Mac OS 10.6.8 (requires Rosetta on Intel Mac) and for Windows OS's 2000 & XP. Untested by me under Windows, but likely will run on newer than XP systems.

Note All of the full installer sets for v6.0 and v6.1 (DL's 3 & 4) can install as either a "Standard or Passport Edition". Use only a Passport serial when installing these, as a Standard serial requires online activation, whereas a Passport serial does not.

Minimum System Requirements:

@blackholemac: Thanks for the addition. This completes the set for v6.x
Your addition installs as a Passport Edition by copy and pasting when requested:

Uploaded is a copy of the QuarkXPress 6.0 media without installer code. This was found in my archives.

I have a retail copy of QXP v6.1, but it requires phone activation each time you install it, which is a PITA

I've since discovered that given the right code, in this case a Passport install code, my copy of 6.1 no longer requests phone/web activation. Hoorah!

I've added my copy, above (DL #4).

I foud this in my archives. It's not a true updater but claims to install a complete 6.1 version. Please read the included instructions as you start with installing vanilla QXP 6 and replacing/adding files to a complete 6.1 Passport version. HTH! Smile

This is working quite nicely under Rosetta in 10.6x here, thanks. I have a retail copy of QXP v6.1, but it requires phone activation each time you install it, which is a PITA Tongue

This passport version 6.0 above, however requires none of that. I wonder if the free updates to 6.1 & 6.5 get around that phone activation with this? I haven't been able to track down the 6.1/6.5 updates tho' as Quark doesn't appear to have them and the Web Archive doesn't have them either.
