Reply to: Limitations of XMetaL 8.0 trial versionNovember 25, 2013 at 7:44 pm
The failure at this line suggests that MSXML (specifically version 4.0 or higher) cannot be loaded. We can reproduce this error when we purposefully break the code to call a non-existent ActiveX control. MSXML is Microsoft's XML parser.
XMXML is our own XML parser, similar to MSXML but with advanced features that include all of the XMetaL APIs. In this particular case the issue being raised is due to MSXML though, no XMXML. It would be difficult to run Windows without MSXML being present, so we suspect something may be purposefully stopping it from being used with XMetaL Author.
