Activation of Markzware‘s ID2Q (InDesign to QuarkXPress) for QuarkXPress 10 conversion software on the Macintosh platform. The following explains how to activate the ID2Q Quark XTension to convert InDesign (INDD) files to QuarkXPress (QXP) 10 files:
ID2Q Successful Activation
Start Up QuarkXPress
After you have installed ID2Q, start up QuarkXPress.
The very first time you start up QuarkXPress after installing ID2Q, the XTension will attempt to contact Markzware’s License Server and activate your product. This should be a fairly transparent process. If the XTension is able to contact the License Server your product will be activated and you will see the screen shown above.
ID2Q Failed Activation
ID2Q Attempting To Activate
ID2Q for QuarkXPress uses standard internet ports to try and communicate with the License Server. If you have a slow internet connection or are blocked from internet access due to security issues, the above screen appears and may not go away until you click the Close button. Under standard conditions, the above screen should disappear within 30 seconds.
If you encounter this screen and it does not close by itself within a reasonable amount of time, please contact Markzware Tech Support.
ID2Q Non-Activated Product
The above is a reminder screen to Activate your product. If for any reason ID2Q was unable to reach our License Server, you can still run the product, but every time you start up QuarkXPress you will presented with the above screen reminding you that you must take action by the specified date.
VERY IMPORTANT!!! – If you do not Activate ID2Q for QuarkXPress by the date listed on your screen, YOU WILL LOSE YOUR LICENSE AND NEED TO REPURCHASE ID2Q.
If you continuously see this window, you need to contact Markzware Tech Support or Sales and get this issue cleared up. Otherwise, after the specified date, ID2Q will cease to function.
ID2Q Proxy Settings
If you are unable to connect to the internet due to a proxy server, ID2Q has some built in features that might help you activate ID2Q.
ID2Q Accessing Proxy Settings
Access the proxy settings by clicking on the word “here”.
ID2Q Enter Proxy Information
You may need to contact your IT or Support person to obtain the information for proxy setup.
(The proxy information is unique to your setup, Markzware does not know your proxy info.)
Once you enter the requested information, click on the Save button and then click on the Close button.
It is safest at this point to Quit and Restart QuarkXPress.
ID2Q Successful Activation
If the proxy data you entered allows you to contact the License Server, you will eventually see a successful activation screen.
If you do not get a successful activation screen, please contact Markzware Technical Support.
