Applies to: QuarkXPress Server 2017

Operating System: Mac OS X

Resolution:

The issue occurs if Java 9 or 10 is installed on the system.

Because, Java 9 and 10 isn't supported with QuarkXPress Server 2017, so in order to resolve this issue, install Java 8 and uninstall any higher version of Java(9 or 10).
