QuarkXpress 5 - does it work with XP SP2?

  Davidpursey 09:29 20 Jun 07

Does the free DVD on the front cover of PC Advisor work with XP SP2 as it only says Window 95/NT.
Also - what is the best way to get it working with Vista - will it work natively or do you have to create a XP partition?

Yes, and contrary to what we have been told, I have got it to work in Vista.

Choose to run the installation as administrator, and for Win XP compatibility.

Is it as simple as that for Vista registration.
I have never set up Vista like that - could you provide some more info o the steps you have to do to set up XP under Vista please - it would be appreciated.

Nothing to do with setting up XP or Vista. This is for a Vista installation - if you right click the installation (setup) file and choose Properties you will get a number of tabs and options. Look at the Compatibilty tab and select XP SP2. There will also be a box somewhere for ticking to run as admin. When done just run setup.

Forgot to add. Copy all the Quark files to your hard drive first before doing any of the above, and run the installation from there.

Excellent - many thanks for getting back so quickly.
