  • Adrian,

        The Microsoft XPS Document Writer (MXDW) is actually only available as part of Windows Vista Beta 2 for now.  Previous CTP releases from late 2005 and early 2006 did include an older version of the MXDW in the then codenamed "WinFX" SDK.  We are working to make this available as part of .NET Framework 3.0 for the RC1 release for downlevel OS.

    Thanks.

  • Rod,

     

    On my Windows XP SP2 machine, I have installed:

    • Microsoft Windows Software Development Kit (5383.1.1)
    • Microsoft Windows Driver Kit 5384
    • WinFX Runtime Components 3.0 - Beta 2

    Yet I cannot find the MXDW driver anywhere. Please help!

     

    Thanks,

    Adrian

  • This comes as a windows update these days I believe for windows xp. It is optional so you have to go to the site and install it yourself.
