    Hi all, –

    I have a simple question.

    I made customization in form of a single XMetaL Application Customization (XAC) file.
    How do I install this file to the user?

    If I just put it in the catalog “…XMetaL 5.5AuthorRules”, the application does not find any customization files and generates its by default.

    [XMetal Author 5.5.0.219]

    This subject is documented in detail in the XMetaL Developer “Customization Guide” in a section called “Deploying customizations”.

    Thanks Derek, –

    But my question is.

    Customization guide says:

    “XMetaL Author searches for XAC and other customization files in the following order:

    1) In the same folder as the DTD specified in the DOCTYPE declaration.
    2) In the same folder as the DTD specified in the catalog file.
    3) In the ..XMetaLAuthorRules folder.”

    First and second method are working, but I prefered the third method.

    Because XML document using XSD which is located somewhere on the third WEB-server.
    XAC file has the same name as the XSD of course.

    And in this case I have a problem that XMetal not find my XAC file in the ..XMetaLAuthorRules folder.

    Works for me with various test cases, but perhaps I'm not doing exactly what you are doing.

    It would be best to submit a case to technical support so they can have a look at your files and include your XAC file and a sample XML document (of most interest here I think is the schemaLocation or noNamespaceSchemaLocation attributes and any related paths that are declared in there).
