Reply to: XMetaL Essential hangs using UNC paths

If the path to the DTD or XSD Schema is of significant length then the path that XMetaL Author generates to save files in the user's per-user folder may end up being too long for Windows:

The fact that the issue goes away for you when you map the UNC path to a drive letter (reducing the length) suggests it might be the same issue. XMetaL Author Enterprise version 14 might include a fix that will help. XMetaL Author Essential 14 will not be released for a while.

It's hard to know for sure what your issue is without getting more detail about what is stored at the UNC path, so which files XMetaL Author is opening from there, etc. So if you can provide that information we can probably give more detail.
