Reply to: XMetaL Error

I would say that this Windows update has somehow caused one or more pieces of the XMetaL Author Enterprise installation to become unregistered, or something has broken files or removed them.

XMetaL Author needs to be registered as a COM server with Windows (this allows it to be customized and controlled through script the same as MS Word, Excel, and similar applications). When you install XMetaL Author the installer does the COM server registration together with a number of DLLs.

Your best bet is to reinstall the software in hope that doing so will restore any missing or broken files and register all the things that need to be registered.
