QuarkXPress 8 compatibility with Windows 8

Post by giambattista » 16 Apr 2019, 18:09

Hello,
I’m a registered user of QuarkXPress 8.12.
I would like to know if this version is compatible with Microsoft Windows 8.1.
Thanks.

Hi,

whether QuarkXPress was ever supported on Windows 8.1, you can see here:
viewtopic.php?f=14&t=4608&f=14&t=4608#p26393

However "not supported" does not necessarily mean "will not run". It just means, we did not test it and will not help with issues that are specific to this combination.

Thanks
Matthias

Thanks for your reply.
I'm aware of the difference between "not supported" and "will not run."
Is there someone who runs successfully QuarkXpress 8 on Windows 8?
Thank you.
