Altova XMLSpy 2020 Professional Edition

The XMLSpy installation package contains tutorials, projects, and example files.


Location of tutorials, projects, and example files

The XMLSpy tutorials, projects, and example files are installed in the folder:


 C:\Documents and Settings\<username>\My Documents\


The My Documents\Altova\XMLSpy2020 folder will be installed for each user registered on a PC within that user's <username> folder. Under this installation system, therefore, each user will have his or her own Examples folder in a separate working area.


Note about the master XMLSpy folder

When XMLSpy is installed on a machine, a master Altova\XMLSpy2020 folder is created at the following folder location:
 C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Application Data\


When a user on that machine starts XMLSpy for the first time, XMLSpy creates a copy of this master folder in the user's <username>\My Documents\ folder. It is therefore important not to use the master folder when working with tutorial or example files, otherwise  these edited files will be copied to the user folder of a user who subsequently uses XMLSpy for the first time.


Location of tutorial, project, and examples files

All tutorial, project, and example files are located in the Examples folder. Specific locations are as follows:


XMLSpy tutorial: Tutorial folder.

Authentic View tutorial: Examples folder.

WSDL tutorial: Examples folder.

Project file: The Examples project with which XMLSpy opens is defined in the file Examples.spp, which is located in the Examples folder.

Example files: are in the Examples folder and in sub-folders of the Examples folder.
