Hi, thank you for contacting JustAnswer.com. My name is Russell. I will do my best to provide the right answer to your question.

That's a difficult question. The download page for that version of QuarkXpress

http://www.quark.com/en/Support/Downloads/Details.aspx?fid=270

says it is compatible from Snow Leopard up to Mavericks. Sierra 10.12 ? that's just questionable.

But you can try it.

This page confirms that there is no support for installing QX versions from 3 through 10 (including 9.x) on 10.12... you need to update to the 2016 version, they advise:

But, being unsupported by Quark themselves does not mean it *cannot* run on 10.12... this page speaks of matter pertinent to your question:

and also may link to useful suggestions ... it says 9.5.4 'is' running on 10.11.

If this answers your question, please rate my answer. A five-star rating would be appreciated!
