Reply to: Problems in Upgrading from XMetal 3 to XMetal 5.1May 29, 2009 at 10:53 pm
The document_path INI setting is read in at startup and sets the default folder to open when you select File > Open. It is set to the last folder you browsed to when you shut down. This isn't really going to help with your customization.
The first thing I would do in your case is to place your customization files on your local machine and confirm that they all work there and work on placing them on your HTTP server once you know things are working fine. In order to help with this issue we really need to you entire customization, so it would be best to submit a support case through the regular XMetaL Support channels. Please let XMetaL Support know the exact version of XMetaL Author you are running as well, from the Help > About… dialog as there are differences between the 5.x releases, added to 5.5 and 5.5 SP1 to support limited users, etc.
