They work both. What does "[..] all did not work." mean exactly? Error messages?

Why notepad++ did not work? do you have a message? or do you have a size of the XML?
because if they are extremely big files (some few Gbs) you will need another way to open it.
Well You can use MS Office, LibreOffice, OpenOffice or try XML Notepad from Microsoft

I haven't tried it, but it should work under Win 10


You were all right! I was confused. Thank you all!
