Hi Miguel,

The problem you had sounds like it relates more to Windows than to XMetaL itself. The commands “Open” and “Edit in XMetaL” will appear on the menu when you right-click on a file in the Windows Explorer. The “Open” command is standard in Windows, and if you select it, Windows will open the file (whatever it is) using the application that it thinks is appropriate. In the case of DITA maps (file extension .ditamap), this should be XMetaL. But in the case of XML files, XMetaL does not “take ownership” of those files automatically in Windows. If you want XML files to open with XMetaL, you need to change that setting via Windows.
