  • OLD Quark XPRESS 4.1

    My PowerMac G-5 has finally gone toes up, and took my programs with it. I still have original disk for version Quark XPRESS 4.1 but I now only have MacMini (late 2012), running Sierra 10.12.3. (4GB) Obvious question, can I use 4.1 with this system?

      Probably not, but why not just try it?

        Thanks for come backs. Will try later today, doubtfully, but just thought I'd ask (maybe after-mkt. add-ons needed?, etc.). Never was very hopeful. Thanks again. Sorry if I stepped on some rules.

        Just get another old computer on ebay. It can't be that much money.

          I poked around and it looks like Quark Xpress 4.1 was released in 1999, so being roughly 18 years old I'd say the odds of Sierra running it are slim. You can possibly look at running emulation, this site has some options you can exploreL http://www.emaculation.com/doku.php

          Or as DesignZombie said you could probably find an old Mac pretty cheap.

          Also, at one point InDesign could open and convert Quark 4 files. have you tried that route?

          And if you go the emulation route, apparently Chubby Bunny is some sort of tweaked SheepShaver install that makes it a little smoother. Here's the link: ​https://happymacs.wordpress.com/2015...ssic-on-intel/
