Quark states at Updating to QuarkXPress 7.2 on a computer running Windows Vista which DOES NOT HAVE a version of QuarkXPress installed that "Before trying to use QuarkXPress 7.2 after installing it, please be sure to run the QuarkXPress license transfer function (Help> Transfer QuarkXPress License) on your old computer and follow the steps provided."
To transfer the license, take the following steps in QuarkXPress:
