Problem with MSXSL

I simply tried to use MSXSL with
the samples in the distribution.

msxsl -i sample.xml -s sample.xsl -o sample.htm

I got the following error message:

Error parsing document 'sample.xml'
Exception: hr = 0x80070057

Any Idea?

Is there another easy to use xsl Parser
for testing purpose?

A good resource for current XML and XSL software is at  There is a link to Saxon, which can be used in command line mode as well as via API calls. If you use Saxon you will also need a SAX parser. Try the xerces parser at
