Unfortunately, the XMetaL Author 5.5 installer has a bug specifically related to the COM registration of our XMetaL automation server objects (i.e. XMetaL.Application, XMetaL.Global, etc).
If you installed XMetaL Author anywhere other than “C:Program FilesXMetaL 5.5Author”, you would encounter this COM registration problem. The 5.5 SP1 installer corrects this problem.
Manually running “xmetal55.exe /RegServer” from a command-prompt window also corrects this problem if you don't want to apply the service pack.
