We would like to use the Studio Press Genesis Corporate theme, but I am unable to find out whether it is responsive or not. Usually, in the demo there are icons to view desktop, tablet, and phone versions. I do not even see the corporate theme listed in All Themes area. On the version 2.0 announcement page, the link goes to a page that does not display the theme.
Suggestions on how to find this information would be appreciated.
Corporate 2.0 Announcement
Link on that page goes here [ Corporate 2.0 ]

The Corporate theme appears to be retired. It was not responsive and not html5. Too bad, since it's handy. I wonder how well it sold, I can make it again, but I am short on time right now.
megalithe by zigzagpress has a more modern, yet similar feeling (at least to me).
See what others say...

I just built and launched (yesterday) a website using the corporate theme. As far as I knew, it was responsive and html5, but perhaps I have the wrong definition of responsive. Anyway, it works well, and looks great on my iphone and ipad. Check it out. http://www.mrcpontiac.qc.ca. I am concerned about the fact that it was retired. Does that mean that there will no longer be any support for this theme?

The Corporate theme is neither HTML5 nor is it responsive.

The corporate theme hasn't been for sale for a while.

I purchased it about a year ago, but my website took about a year to develop. What happens now? It sounds like I just put a lot of work into a project that is already dated. How difficult (and expensive) is it to make a theme responsive? I must admit that not knowing much about WordPress when I started this project, I didn't see this coming.

you can write media queries to add responsiveness to the website.
Best case scenario is that you find a website using the corporate theme that has already added custom media queries, so you could borrow and adjust the code.
Otherwise you have to write them from scratch.
It would probably be easier/faster/cheaper to switch to one of the Pro themes (Executive Pro or Enterprise Pro seem closest to your current (front page) layout, Magazine Pro, Daily Dish Pro,... )

All themes continue to be supported, but I echo Christoph's suggestion to switch to another theme, rather than try to make an existing non-responsive theme responsive and HTML5 ready.November 16, 2015 at 1:20 pm #171289
Thank you both for your responses. I decided to switch to another theme, and am testing it out locally, but yikes! is there an easy way to do it without having to redesign from scratch? I assume it's not as simple as importing the stylesheet??? Any tips / tricks to save me hours and hours of work will be most welcome.
