Reply to: XMetaL 5.0 on Windows 7?

You will have trouble with any of our products with a 5.0 release number and I would not try to install any of them on Windows. The file install-readme.html (ships with our installers) should tell you the minimum hardware and OS requirements for each version.

Keep in mind that 'XMetaL' is really a brand name and not a product name (though it forms part of the name in most products). I assume you are asking about either the first or second product listed below:

XMetaL Author Enterprise
XMetaL Author Essential

The current version of XMetaL Author Enterprise 6.0 supports Windows 7. The full version number for this release is In this case the install-readme.html contains a note stating that “only preliminary testing has been completed” on Windows 7. This is no longer true as testing is complete and no additional issues specific to Windows 7 are currently known (ie: it is safe to install and run and officially supported). Future releases will not contain that warning the install-readme.

XMetaL Author Essential 6.0 has not been released yet. It will also support Windows 7.
