Re: [xml] Strange validation errors in libxml 2.9.0 with MSVC 2010

Hi Daniel,
thanks for responding over the weekend, much obliged.

Please note that the problem is not the system ID; I replaced the full path to the relative one as I was sure that my full path would not work for anyone else.
So, the DTD is in fact, found - how else would xmllint.exe be able to validate it? I messed up the DTD on purpose once just to see if there are errors - and there were, so xmllint can find the DTD for sure.

The source of my frustrations are the validation errors that are produced by a seemingly correct code, validated and well-formed XML and DTD.

The only thing I can think of is that the some build setting may be wrong - however I am not adept enough to discover that.

Did anyone managed to get xmlReaderForFile(...) working on MSVC 2010 without validation errors?

Best regards: Zoltán Ördögh

  See your xml and the system identifier you use for the DTD


if I use that I get an error that the DTD fails to be loaded on linux
and validation fails (xml and dtd being in the same directory) switching

works after that i.e. xmllint code succeeds

file:// URIs are (or used to be) completely underspecified, and
what you use there would mean on a Linux machine, the file testme.dtd
which is in the . directory under to root of the filesystem of the
localhost machine, i.e. /testme.dtd instead of ./testme.dtd
What is does on Windows and why, I can't guess and I can't test,
simply run your program under a debugger, since you have a reliable
behaviour !
