Add description

You should add a dedcription at this page. So nobody who didn't already use the tool knows what it is.

Do it somehow like here: http://portableapps.com/node/21754
Add a link, a brief description , maybe a category.

I'll test your app when I get the time (tomorrow?)

[NOTE] Check your files for viruses, there are two files in the App\XMLCopyEditor\bin\ folder reported to me being a trojan.

"Der Klügere gibt nach, deshalb regieren Dumme die Welt."

Possible False Positive

Your AV is probably biting on the fact that the files in bin are compressed with UPX. I have Microsoft Forefront Client Security, and it didn't find anything harmful.

EDIT: hmm, maybe there is something funny going on. Most of the flagging was due to packing, but McAfee isn't liking this, at all.
Draw your own conclusions; I'm only posting the VirusTotal results.

doc2xml.exe: 4/40 scanners flagged at VirusTotal. http://www.virustotal.com/analisis/f8a4b10bb3f7f2f42cb9c6396b78b15de35a3...

navigate.exe: 4/40 scanners flagged at VirusTotal. https://www.virustotal.com/analisis/f0ef14e078c0f32abb6879abe941a46130c2...

xml2doc.exe: 4/38 scanners flagged at VirusTotal (something apparently broke in the other two scanners?). https://www.virustotal.com/analisis/6a6ec20b1a986d68afd483c0f721e219c017...

"The question I would like to know, is the Ultimate Question of Life, the Universe and Everything. All we know about it is that the Answer is Forty-two, which is a little aggravating."

...

Looking at those VirusTotal results, those all look like generic detections (i.e. false positives). One of those even has "Heur" as part of the detection, indicating that it set off flags in the heuristics, but didn't actually match a virus definition. I'm guessing the other three are heuristic detections, too.

Edit: Looking at the VirusTotal page again, I notice there's a section in the info saying it was processed with "Yoda's Crypter". Having looked said program up, it appears to be a tool to encrypt EXEs to prevent decompilation and debugging. Seems fishy to me--why would you do that to binaries for an open-source app when the source is freely available? I would guess the encrypter is what's setting off the virus warnings.

I am not sure why it would

I am not sure why it would report it as a virus. I included the EXEs from the latest official release. I have used this program before without a problem so I imagine it is a false positive.

Ill put up a description real quick.

I do not find anything from

I do not find anything from the virus.
However, the tool itself is rather senseless,
to me it does not help editing xml-files
better than a simple editor.
