  • Quark trial installation problems

    Hey all,
    I'm trying to install a trial version of Quark that I downloaded from their official website. Whenever I click on the DMG file (I'm downloading on Mac) I get the error message "The following disk images couldn't be opened:
    qxp95_mac.dmg not recognized".

    I have had no issues installing other software; its just this one.

    Is this a common occurrence? Or am I just screwed? thanks, all.

    What OS? Does your computer meet the minimum requirements?

    You may need to contact Quark for a resolution.

      Snow Leopard 10.6.8. My computer does indeed meet the requirements.

      I contacted support and am awaiting a response; I just thought I'd also post here to see if anyone had come across a similar problem and knew of a fast way to fix it. Thanks.

        Hate to say it, but good luck getting a response. About a year ago we were having problems with Quark 9. Sent over 20 emails and made at least 10 calls over the course of three months. They never replied.

        I think we're finally seeing the end of Quark.

            People still use Quark?

                Not that I'm condoning Adobe's monopoly; but what does Quark have that Adobe doesn't?

                  In Virgo's case, probaby the home court advantage. I'm guessing they had Quark and never made the switch.

                    So I guess "diehard customers" is the answer to my question.

                      We have over a decade's worth of Quark files archived which we still pull out and make revisions to and an Art Director who might as well be allergic to change. We have InDesign (as part of the Creative Suite) and use it when a client provides us with ID files to change, but other than that it's been Quark all the way.

                      Being that I'm job hunting, it also certainly doesn't hurt that I know Quark AND InDesign. And yes, I have seen ads posted looking for people who know Quark with no mention of InDesign.

                      I know all the ID fans proclaim Quark is dead. It's not. Not yet.

                        It's dying, a slow and tragic death, and all the rats still left on the ship are going to find themselves wet soon enough.

                        You'd think by it's current market share that it's users would start working in ID so when we do see the last of Quark, they don't still have decades of .qxd in archive.

                          I'm hoping to not be here when that happens.

                            maybe I should start investing in companies that make "qxd to indd" software.

                              I still fire up Quark a few times a week for the same reason Virgo mentioned — lots of existent work in Quark. Most of the important stuff has been rebuilt in ID though. I may be in the minority of people that never managed to develop any real animosity toward Quark. Seeing what Adobe is turning into, I sometimes even kind of mourn its eventual demise.
