Hmm... I guess some dependency for the revXML stuff got borked on your
system. But I can't test that theory for you. The problem is, if I'm
right, then you need to ask RunRev for eventual dependencies.
Two ways to check:
Take my documentation stack, and look if it works better. If not, the
source files, the rev documentation or the revXML library are most
Using my stack, you can also look at all the xml entries without using
the revXML library (they get saved as files to the hard disk). If you
see in the files, that the "example" XML field did not get damaged, you
can try to see if my stack shows the examples properly (it should by
default). If it does not then its certainly the revXML library.
You could try to look at the files:
take one of the stacks (they're called revDOcClump_XX.Rev) from this
Open it, and look at the custom properties (best to copy it into a text
editor). If the "example" fields of the xml data are filled, then it's
a problem of Rev or the revXML library.
