#1266 Import of Output Profiles does not work


When attempting to import the output profiles from Version 2 Alpha 3 in Alpha 4 (32 or 64bit), TeXnicCenter complains about the Microsoft XML Parser not being properly installed. The import worked in Alpha 3. When importing profiles exported from Alpha 4 in Alpha 4 and error is reported for the xml.

    Hello, I can tell you I have the same problem. I have a solution for 32 bits version. The file OutputProfiles.xsd into TexnicCenter folder has an error. I corrected it and posted the same error as you at http://www.latex-community.org/forum/viewtopic.php?f=31&t=17908. Download the file and try it.
    Please, test it and tell me about the solution. The file doesn't work for 64 bits version. There's a bug in the app. It calls a non existent address (I debugged it!) but I can't solve it (I can't program in MFC).

    I can tell you the solution:

    If you open your program folder you will see a file named:


    This file defines the xml structure of the file you wish to import.
    Open it with an editor like np++ and do the following:

    Search for this line: <!-- definition of a single output profile
    (identified by name) -->

    Copy the following code and paste it above the postProcessor element. It's
    almost the same just "post" replaced by "pre". But because this is missing
    in the expecting structure but listed in the file you wish to import you're
    getting the error message.

    <xs:element name="preProcessors" type="ProcessorList">
    <xs:unique name="preProcessorNames">
    <xs:selector xpath="processor" />
    <xs:field xpath="@name" />

    Now save the file.
    Everything should be fine now.

    Happy TeXing
