Customer Question

Hi. I am running Quark on an older PC using Vista. I just had to reload 5 and 5.01 versions of Quark and tried to run as administrator. However, a notice came up saying Quark is no longer valid and... contact QuarkXpress. So here I am. I'm not upgrading my OS, and have to work with what I have to work with. How do I get Quark to work again?
JA: How much experience do you have with this particular machine?
Customer: Home/Office, everyday.
JA: What troubleshooting have you tried?
Customer: I ran Norton Eraser, which told me the Quark EXE was corrupted. So I removed Quark, then reinstalled.
JA: The computer expert can solve this for you. Anything else you want him to know before I connect you two?
Customer: No. I'm fine.

We could give you a vanilla version of WP, but you would loose your themes and everything.

Would this be OK as it sounds like the actual data is intact.
