I have run into a problem installing the EAD Cookbook into XMetaL 2.1. I
have double checked and am confident that I have copied the appropriate
files into the appropriate folders. Our network administrator reinstalled
the software and double checked the upgrade. I was once able to install the
Cookbook in XMetaL 1.2 at a different institution, so I am stumped.
The crux of the problem is that the page preview option generates an error.
Specifically, the dialog box says, "Automation server can't create object,"
and refers me to Line 38, Column 2 of the ead.mcr file which is the middle
line of the following command:
// Apply XSLT stylesheet
var xt = new ActiveXObject("XT.Application");
xt.transform( xmlPath, xslPath, htmPath );
Has anyone else run into this problem? Our net admin talked with Softquad
and they weren't too helpful, but perhaps I will have to speak with them
Any help will be appreciated. My apologies if this has already come up on
the list; the link to the list archives from the LoC page is not working.
