XMLValidator4UE was built for the Microsoft .NET framework 2.0 and higher. If you don't already have a version installed, then you can download the .NET framework from Microsoft's homepage.
Version 1.1.0 can validate xml files, even if they are used by another process. Normally UltraEdit uses temporary files for editing, but if the file exceeds a certain size, it writes directly to the file instead and therefore locks the file.
Since version 1.0.1 the tool registration is done with a 8.3 DOS path, because of compatibility problems with quoted paths containing space characters.
Writing an XML parser which covers all the possibilities of XML and it's encodings, is an enormous work, and i wouldn't have taken it upon myself to write this tool without a "little" help. Actually i wrote only the framework and the integration into UltraEdit32, the parsing and validating i all left to the .NET environment, which offers a great support for XML processing.
