To install the XMLSpy Plug-in for Visual Studio, take the steps below:


1.Install Microsoft Visual Studio 2012/2013/2015/2017/2019/2022. Note that from Visual Studio 2022 onwards, Visual Studio is being made available only as a 64-bit application.

2.Install XMLSpy (Enterprise or Professional Edition). If you have installed Visual Studio 2022+, then you must install the 64-bit version of XMLSpy.

3.Download and run the XMLSpy integration package for Microsoft Visual Studio. This package is available on the XMLSpy (Enterprise and Professional Editions) download page at


Once the integration package has been installed, you will be able to use XMLSpy in the Visual Studio environment.




You must use the integration package corresponding to your XMLSpy version (current version is 2023). The integration package is not edition-specific and can therefore be used for both Enterprise and Professional editions.
