Reply to: Tutorial: Producing Automated, Customized DITA Documents in Batch Mode

We have attribute specializations overriding @props in concepts.dtd, tasks.dtd and references.dtd along with .ent file for each attribute we define. We have registered these DTDs with our CMS system ok, however have problems when registering them in XMetal 6.0 Enterprise Author.

As per Option 3 (most flexible), we have copied our customized DTDs to following locations
  C:Program FilesXMetaL 6.0AuthorDITADITA_OT_DTD
  C:Program FilesCommon FilesXMetaL SharedDITA_OTdtd

When opening a DITA xml file XMetal complains with error dialog box upon startup:

“Unable to create rules file. The file C:Program FilesXMetaL 6.0AuthorDITAXACsconceptconcept_ditabase.rlx could not be created.”

followed by an error indicating our dita file could not be opened because a DTD could not be found. The DTD reference is same as standard DITA

If we open the file after XMEtal starts without loading an existing doc, it doesn't complain?? Has anyone encountered this problem?
