DisplayXMLFiles.dll plugin in WinMerge 2.16

Postby igitur » Tue Jan 08, 2019 9:58 am


One of my favourite plugins, DisplayXMLFiles.dll, which prettifies XML files before comparing them, has been omitted in WinMerge 2.16. I can't figure out why. The only mention of this, in https://bitbucket.org/winmerge/winmerge/issues/71/xml , seems to be that there was an issue and that it was fixed (unless Google Translate is lying to me).

Anybody who has any idea about the status of this plugin?

I don't know why the DisplayXMLFiles plugin is no longer included. I discovered it missing too, when installing the latest version of WinMerge, 2.16.8, on a new computer.
But I was able to get it working by copying over these 2 files from version 2.14 on my old computer to the same folder paths on the new one:

C:\Program Files\WinMerge\MergePlugins\DisplayXMLFiles.dll
C:\Program Files\WinMerge\libexpat.dll
