you'll need to know which path it installs the files, and hope that it was installed with default settings.

Lets say for example it puts the files in C:\program files\xmlspy note - I don't know if thats true, but I bet you can find the answer easily by attempting an install.

Assuming you are on a domain, and have domain admin rights, I would paste this to your command line after editing the path to fit what the install path for xml spy is.

FOR /F "TOKENS=1" %A IN ('NET VIEW') DO dir "%A\c$\program files\xmlspy" >> log.txt

Might take some time depending on the size of your domain... so go for lunch or something then come back and read log.txt - you'll have your answer.

I get this.

 Volume in drive \\ACCAPP\c$ has no label.
 Volume Serial Number is A41F-6B45

 Directory of \\ACCAPP\c$\program files

 Volume in drive \\ACCES\c$ has no label.
 Volume Serial Number is A41F-6B45

What will it look like if it is found
You will see a listing of files if the path exists

Try this:
Click start -> Run -> Cmd.exe

FOR /F "Tokens=1" %c IN ('Net view') DO IF EXIST "\\%c\C$\Program Files\Altova" @Echo XMLSpy Found in: %c
