Reply to: Error while trying to open a XFT-File

Hello Derek,

thanks for your quick answer (as always). I'm afraid this hasn't worked. Currently I've XMetaL 3 and XMetaL 5.0 installed. Could it possibly be that there are some interdependencies? In the registry there are many entries doubled with an additional “.1” at the end:

If I select a XFT-Form in VS and then choose the “XFLayout.exe”-handler from XMetaL 3 in the the “Open with…”-Menu manually, the selectd form can be edited with the layout tool from XM3. When I choose the “XFTLayout.exe (Standard)”-entry (XM5) on the other hand, the “Unable to start XMetaL. Exiting…”-error appears.
