XLingPaper depends on the XMLmind XML Editor so you must download and install the XMLmind XML Editor before you can use XLingPaper. It works with two versions of the XMLmind XML Editor: version 7.4+ (the latest version) and version 5.3. Given the definite advantages of version 7.4+, we only offer instructions on how to get version 7.4+.

XMLmind offers a very generous Personal Edition License for the XMLmind XML Editor which, if you qualify, means that you can use it for free. If you do not qualify for the Personal Edition License, then you will need to purchase a Professional Edition from XMLmind.

For those of you who are a member of SIL International and are going to use the XMLmind XML Editor program on your own computer, you do qualify to use the Personal Edition. If you are not a member of SIL International, you may well qualify, but be sure to read the license carefully. You can find the license at http://www.xmlmind.com/xmleditor/license_xxe_perso.html.
