    I am currently getting this Microsoft error with XMetal 6.0;

    I tried following the suggestions that seemed to work for the original posters of the thread; uninstalling – removing it along with the suggested supplementary folders (Program Files/XMetal 6.0, Program Files/Corel/.., Programs Files/Common Files/XMetal Shared/*, /AppData/Softquad, /Local Settings/Temp/Xmetal/..).  But after doing all this, then rebooting, then reinstalling, the first time I open XMetal and try to create a new document, it opens the new document and then I get this error and it crashes.  I've gone thru the uninstall/reinstall process 3 times, but can't get rid of the problem.  I even used the uninstall utility you'd sent me earlier (xmclean.exe) after the last uninstall; still no joy…

    Is there a new version (later than that fixes this problem?  6.0.1 was working for me for about 5 days  before this started happening

    Hi Nancy,

    You have the latest version of XMetaL Author Enterprise. Have you tried installing the XFRunner.dll patch described here:,915.0.html ?

    If that doesn't work, let me know and we will arrange a WebEx session. It would probably be easier to troubleshoot this problem if we can see what's going on.
