After Qinsy installation icons are displayed as black boxes.

This has to do with the display properties of your computer. Probably your color quality is set to 16 bits. The icons need a quality of 32 bits.
Changing this setting will probably solve the problem.

Does Qinsy run with MSXML6?

Yes, the releases after QINSy MSI 8.10.2015.11.28.1 use MSXML6. MSXML6 is part of Windows XP SP3, Windows Vista, Windows 7, Windows 8 or 8.1 and Windows 10.
Older versions of QINSy require the installation of MSXML4. MSXML4 can be installed beside MSXML6. MSXML4 can be downloaded from QPS or from Microsoft directly.

During the installation I get a warning related to OPC, what should I do?

If you don't use OPC or have no idea what it is, please ignore this message and continue the installation.
Qinsy should install fine.

If you are using OPC you might not have Administration rights on your PC.
If you do and it still does not work, please contact QPS Support.
