  • Conversion Error - Why?

    I have a couple of web.config files I am comparing using "XML Tidied" as a default. However I am getting a conversion error.

    How do I know what the conversion error is to try to resolve it?

    It is likely malformed XML. The 3rd party Tidy conversion is very picky about what you give it. If you look at that File Format, go to the Conversion tab, and look at the External Conversion command line used. You can then call that manually from the command line (source = your file, target = temp.txt). This should also throw an error and Tidy throw a lot of text into the command window.

    Or you can send us your BC (Help menu -> Support; Export) and your pair of trouble files, and we'll try to reproduce it on our end. Please email this to [email protected] since the will contain all of your settings (and you probably do not want to share it publically on the forum).

    Please include a link back to this forum post in the email, as well. Thanks.
