On XMetaL 10, the Windows registry key FEATURE_USE_LEGACY_
The best solution would be to update to XMetaL 11 or 12. This legacy XMetaL feature no longer appears in the registry for these newer versions so no workaround is required.
The DITA Map Editor feature in XMetaL requires using this legacy Jscript script engine. However, in our testing, we didn't observe any problems when disabling this registry key.
If you are still using XMetaL 10, then you need to disable the legacy Jscript engine by changing an entry in the Windows registry to load the Acrolinx sidebar. You must have administrator privileges to edit the Windows registry. Navigate to the key FEATURE_USE_LEGACY_
