Ellié Computing Merge uses Microsoft XML by default
through the MSXSL.EXE tool. If you get the message "Could not
locate a recognized version of MSXML on the machine. Please
re-install MSXML version 2.6 or later", please get MSXML from
Microsoft web site (
The report generation was tested succesfully with MSXML3
and MSXML4 SP2.
On Unix (Linux, Solaris)
Ellié Computing Merge is pre-configured to work with
xsltproc which comes with the package libxslt or alone as
You can use another XSLT processor if you have another one
installed, by configuring the command line in the application
command line configuration panel. The command line uses three
special parameters: $(input) for the XML input file,
$(output) for the result of the XSLT processor and $(xsl) for
the stylesheet. Ellié Computing Merge automatically
escapes these parameters so that you do not have to care
about spaces inside these arguments. For example:
xsltproc -o $(output) $(xsl) $(input)
If an error message telling that a locale is not available
is shown at the application startup (such as "fr_FR" or
"es_ES"), the report generation will fail as well. To solve
this, you must install the locale with the 'Add locale'
option of your system installer.
on Debian based systems, use the command
"dpkg-reconfigure locales" to add the wanted locales (add
the version with UTF8 support at least)
xsltproc being installed by default on MacOS, you
should not have any issue when generating reports within
Ellié Computing Merge.
