Activation on Multiple Computers

A single-user license of QuarkXPress allows the primary registered user to install and use the software on two computers (a primary computer and secondary computer). To take advantage of this, simply install and activate QuarkXPress on both computers.

The dual activation policy is platform independent, so you can use it on two computers running macOS, two computers running Windows or two computers, one running macOS, the other running Windows.

Activation Helps Thwart Software Piracy

License activation addresses the increasing problem of software piracy, specifically the unauthorized sharing of software through casual copying.

Software piracy costs developers millions of dollars every year. By stopping piracy, software companies will be able to pour more money into research, development, and support, which ultimately results in a better product for you.
