We are currently using XMetaL 8 with SDL Live Content Architect 2013 (soon to be upgraded to SDL Tridion Docs 2018). One of our users has installed XMetaL 8 but the SDL Authoring Bridge install can't find XMetaL (says that XMetaL 8 is not installed, but we can see it fine in Windows Programs and Features). Does anyone know:

 * If XMetaL 8 must be fully licensed on the machine before the Authoring Bridge install can detect it (the license server for XMetaL 8 is no longer in service because it is so down-level - Just Systems provided an "unregister" executable for us, so we can use it until the upgrade).

 * What the SDL CMS authoring bridge install checks to detect XMetaL (i.e. a specific registry key).

Many thanks for any help you can give. I have posted this to the SDL Community as well.

We were able to resolve the issue by unregistering XMetaL (using the XMetaL 8 unregister executable provided by Just Systems) and then repairing XMetaL (via Programs and Features).
