Question about Microsoft XML Notepad 2007

1 Answer

Using XML Notepad 2007 on a Dell laptop running Windows 7 Pro with 8Gb of RAM. The application runs extremely slowly and sometimes never locates a line I am looking for from the error list or from a find. Works better but still slowly on a desktop system with lower specs. Any ideas?

    Hello and welcome to fixya.
    Its a bit too strange actually that your computer runs that slowly even with 8GB of RAM memory. That is why i will ask the following:

    - Is your RAM allocated appropriately? (Motherboard chipset supports all 8gb of RAM and are you running Windows 7 64-bit. This is important as 32-bit versions of windows only support up to 3gb RAM MAX).

Hello and welcome to fixya.

This post/link might be what you were looking for. It appears that this MS tool has apparently some issues. Unless this tool provides some special functionality (like Visual Studio collaboration/integration) that other editors don't I reccomend to use these very good (AND FREE) alternatives:

1. Notepad++ here. (PHP,TXT,XML, all-around editor can use regex to search any file)
2. XmlPad here.

Let me know if this post helped you at all.

Thanks.

Hi try this.

Converting Microsoft Office 2007 to Full Version:

This requires that Microsoft Office 2007 has been installed without the product key in the first place.

Once Microsoft Office 2007 has been installed with no product key, proceed as follows:


1. In Windows Explorer of your pc, browse to the following folder:

C:Program FilesCommon FilesMicrosoft SharedOFFICE12Office Setup ControllerProof.en


2. Right click on Proof.XML file, select Open With in the right click menu.


3. In the Open With window, select Notepad to be used to open the XML file.
[Note: In Windows Vista, if you can't see the Notepad option, simply double click the "Other Programs" to unhide it.]

4. Scroll down to the bottom of the Proof.XML to locate the following lines:

<feature Id=SetupXmlFiles Cost=1248><optionref Id=AlwaysInstalled/></feature>

5. Change the AlwaysInstalled to NeverInstalled so that the line looks like following:

<optionref Id=NeverInstalled/>


6. Save the Proof.xml file.

[In Windows Vista, you may need to take ownership and grant full access permission to yourself before able to modify the file.

7. You can now launch Microsoft Office 2007 application such as Word, Excel, Powerpoint, Outlook and etc without prompting for activation.

Good luck!

I don't know my product key


Follow the steps bellow! Replace all * with html closed or opened. For example see here: http://img713.imageshack.us/img713/139/expt.png

Then follow these instructions:
1. Close all Microsoft Office applications.
2. Run Register Editor by clicking on Start - Run, and then type "regedit" in the Open box and press Enter key.
3. Navigate to the following registry key:

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\Office\12.0\Registration

Note that inside the registry key, there should be another subkey that resembles the following:

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\Office\12.0\Registration\{90120000-0030-00

­00-0000-0000000FF1CE

or

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\Office\12.0\Registration\{91120000-0011-00­00-0000-0000000FF1CE
4. If there is more than one registry entries or subkeys that reference Microsoft 12.0 registration, open up each subkey, and then identify the product by the ProductName value data until you locate the subkey for the product which you want to remove the existing product license key.

For example:

ProductName=Microsoft Office Professional Plus 2007
ProductName=Microsoft Office Enterprise 2007
5. Once found the correct registry subkey, delete the following values:

DigitalProductID
ProductID
6. Close Registry Editor.

Once Microsoft Office 2007 has been installed with no product key, proceed with the following steps:

1. In Windows Explorer, brose to the following folder:

C:\Program Files\Common Files\Microsoft Shared\OFFICE12\Office Setup Controller\Proof.en\
2. Right click on Proof.XML file, select "Open With..." in the right click menu.
3. In the "Open With" window, select Notepad to be used to open the XML file. In Vista, if you can't see the Notepad option, simply double click the "Other Programs" to unhide it.
4. Scroll down to the bottom of the Proof.XML to locate the following lines:

*/Feature* *Feature Id="SetupXmlFiles" Cost="1248?*
*OptionRef Id="AlwaysInstalled"/*
*/Feature*
5. Change the AlwaysInsalled to neverInstalled so that the line looks like following:

*OptionRef Id="neverInstalled"/*
6. Save the Proof.xml file. In Windows Vista, you may need to take ownership and grant full access permission to yourself before able to modify the file.
7. You can now launch Microsoft Office 2007 application such as Word, Excel, Powerpoint, Outlook and etc without prompting for activation.
