Windows 2008 R2

description

I installed XPath Visualizer on my Windows 2008 R2 terminal server, with .Net 3.5 and .Net 4. The installation went smoothly but when I start the application I miss the menus and the containers for the XML content.

I was also surprised.

By default, Menubar is hiden (some sort of full view) and there is no tab opened.
By pressing standard "Alt", Menubar is made visible. You can then do a File>New or File>Open. This will give you "containers for the XML content".

A peek through the source and I've found that the menubar is set to 'autohide'. As MuiBienCarlota says, pressing 'Alt' brings the bar up and it autohides afterward. This is by design but I'm struggling to work out why. I can understand that screen space can be at a premium on busy forms but there is so little actually displayed, I'm not sure what is really being achieved here.

I would strongly advise that the author add something quite prominent to both the app and the documentation indicating the user needs to press 'Alt' to bring up the menu bar because it's not clear in any way whatsoever.
