    I have just got a new computer and downloaded the latest version of freemind, and am trying to open a file created on my old computer which had an old version of freemind on it.

    I get this error:

    javax.xml.transform.TransformerConfigurationException: Could not compile stylesheet

    HTH, Chris

    Did this work for you?

    I downloaded the latest version freemind 1.0.0. Beta8 and it still will not open files in older versions of Freemind

    Thanks Bill

    Hi Bill,

    please provide the log messages when opening an old file.

    TIA, Chris

    HI Chris

    Itss ok and working now I cannot replicate that error so the 1.0.0. Beta8 Version has fixed the problem

    Thanks Regards

    Here is my fix, and it isn't a very good one. I updated my old FreeMind files on a Linux system, in my case Ubuntu 11.04, and then brought them back over to my Windows 7 computer. Sorry I couldn't do any better, but this was the quickest solution for me.
