1 - The installation file has been used to install XMetaL on my old workstation so I know the file itself is not broken

2 - XMetaL is the only authoring tool I've installed so far - all extending applications need to build on it only after successful installation and I haven't proceeded to them yet.

3 - I've actually uninstalled and reinstalled Microsoft Visual C++ and even that didn't help.

I'm really desperate to find the answer to this issue. Thanks for your response.

This is going to be one of three issues:

1) The installation is broken.
2) Something you install that modifies or extends the XMetaL Author capabilities (a CMS integration or other 3rd party extension or your own customizations) is broken or incompatible with the version you are running.
3) Some portion of Windows is broken.

If you need additional help with this your best bet is to contact XMetaL Support so they can obtain additional details about your system.

I had XMetaL installed on my workstation but had to reinstall it after upgrading to a new workstation.

I installed XMetaL with the correct installation file and the installation was successful. However, when trying to open the program, a dialog box displays with a Runtime Error:

This application has requested the Runtime to terminate it in an unusual way. Please contact the application's support team for more information.

This INI file is being written out due to some shared code with XMetaL Author that should actually be disabled in XMAX. I would not rely on it or build a solution that assumes it will exist in future releases. It might seem to support some INI settings that are shared with XMetaL Author, but most settings will not work as they don't apply to XMAX. Most INI settings have to do with the UI and features in XMetaL Author that do not exist in XMAX (features that, if needed, would be created as part of the containing application).

Our team has been adding runtime properties and APIs to XMAX when they are identified as being useful (including user requests). I've asked that they look at supporting an API equivalent to this particular INI setting for a future release.

This must be a new feature in a later version of 11 (we have released a few dot releases of 11). I'll check with development so that we can update the documentation.

On my machine there is the file:
C:\Users\USERNAME\AppData\Roaming\SoftQuad\XMetaL XMAX\11.0\(null).ini

Adding the entry
  validate_before_export=no
will disable the validation in XMAX.

XMAX does not have an INI file (as noted earlier in this thread).

The API you are hoping for (to turn off validation) does not exist (even in the current release, which is 11), so you would have to implement something similar to what Sebastian has done. Basically that amounts to grabbing the XML source and passing that into your application as a string variable (using the API ActiveDocument.Xml) and then writing that string to disk using code in your application.

Thank you so much! That did the trick. That's a good one to know. I appreciate the speedy response!

I can't get the "file", "help", "about" menu commands to come back. I closed a dita map and I can no longer get xmetal command functionality to return. I've tried doing a "reset all"  'Right click tool bar->"Customize" "options" but nothing is coming back. i've opened new docs, I've restarted. No idea where to go from here aside from reinstall, which seems silly for something that should be pretty simple. Hope I'm just missing something.
See attached image to see what I mean about the tool bar.

Thanks.
