Validate Now, not able to validate XML against schema
AngieBee last edited by AngieBee
I have installed XML Tools and when I go to Plugins, Validate Now I get "Following error occurred during schema file parsing: Failed to locate the main schema resource 'ShowRepairOrder.xsd;. According to everything that I have read it should pop-up a box where I can select the schema .xsd file to compare the xml to, but I am not getting that. I have removed the XML Tools and reinstalled and I am still having the same issues. Can anyone help me with this?

You might want to see if my reply in Need to load XSD helps, because it sounds similar to those events.
Specifically, I think my conclusion that I drew from those experiments, “…that XML Tools will only ask you for the schema location if it’s not embedded in the XML itself; if it is embedded, it will automatically use the one it finds”, applies to your situation as well. It’s not prompting you because you specify it; it doesn’t seem to know that if it cannot find the specified one, it should also prompt.
I believe that when it doesn’t find the specified, it should prompt for location, rather than just giving an error, so I have added a bug report to what appears to be the GitHub home for the XML Tools plugin: issue #11
Update Feb 25, 2020: issue #11 has been closed; the problem is fixed as of XML Tools v22.214.171.124

Thanks for the reply. I ended up figuring it out after talking to a co-worker that uses XML Spy. I put the XML and .xsd files in the same folder and it validated. We then found the issue with the file.
