Transfer QX 8.12 to a new computer

Postby robert mac » 23 Jan 2017, 21:10

I have QX 8.12 running on my Mac OSX 10.11.5. When I transferred my files to my new Power Mac with the same OSX, my QX 8.12 does not allow me to (Save /Save As) a document. I started with QX6.1 and have updated to 8.12. I get the message that I have to reinstall. When I insert the QX 8 disk it says that a valid copy is already installed. I have tried a Custom and Full installation and get the message that Installation Failed /Not compatible with this OSX. ... It worked on one computer but not on the other. I need help

Hi Robert,

we do not support QuarkXPress 8 anymore and also it was never supported on OS X 10.11, so all I can do is guess.

Have you tried updating 8.1 to 8.5.1, maybe that fixes the issue?
