Emulation
This app works with: Mini vMac II

QuarkXPress version 2.11 for 68k Macintosh. An early example of what was for the 1990's, the industry standard in Desktop Publishing.

Compatibility
Architecture: 68k

Likely this will run on earlier Mac OS's than SSW 6 and on other Macintosh emulators. My test Mac so far has only been the Mac II variation of Mini vMac, on which it runs nicely (SSW 6.07 - 7.1).

Note 1: *There was a page ad which informed you that if you filled out the registration card, you would receive a registered (to you) copy of the program disk without copy protection. The English disk set above, is one of those and is the reason why the installer installs QXP 2.11 as a preregistered copy.

Note 2: The French copy is missing its spelling dictionary.

@slomacuser: It is excellent to see this fresh copy from you. Pre-registered installers are somewhat unique to Quark, I think. Someone had used the disks unlocked back in 1998, but I can't hope for perfection with something this old and extreme rarity.

Thank you for the addition, it's very much appreciated.

Looks like I got mix of Quark disk sets. Labels are the same so that's why it was mixed up.

- Program disk 1 (Quark 3.1)
- Program disk 2 (Quark 3.1)
- Program disk 3 (Quark 3.0)
- Samples Disk (Quark 3.0)
- Xpress program (Quark 2.11)

Anyway I got another and complete set for 2.11 and will upload it letely. Other versions can be removed than.

Hi, slomacuser: I also obtained the original floppies for this version as an ebay purchase (5 or more years back). What I received looked like they had been subjected to flood damage or had coffee or worse drenched over them. They were DOA. Unfortunately I no longer have them as I thought they were in too poor condition to attempt recovery. I'm kind of regretting that decision now as it may have been a chance at getting that disk 4.

Thank you very much for your efforts with these old softwares.

So I have imaged:
- Program disk 1 (imaged with disc copy w/o problems)
- Program disk 2 (imaged with disc copy w/o problems)
- Program disk 3 (gave errors, so I copied to HD and then made image from folder, some files missing)
- Samples Disk (gave errors, so I copied to HD and then made image from folder, some files missing)
- Xpress program (imaged with disc copy w/o problems, installs registered update 2.11)

Looks like there is disk 4 but I do not have it, so installer can not complete installation

I got originall floppies and could image the Program disk of 2.11 version, will try to image other disks which report error for now... Interesting is that the Program disks has installer which installs registered version with name. So it could be upgrade sent to registered users.
