Apparently you're XML has a reference to an XSLT file. When you open the
file with a texteditor like notepad and you will probably find at the top of
the file a statement like <?xml-stylesheet type="text/xsl"
href="LynkIncXML/LynkXMLPO.xsl'" >. The error message is saying it can't
open the this xsl-file. You can remove this statement and open the XML file.
You will see the raw XML data. So probably useless for you.

I don't know why it works from other mail clients or directory. Somehow it
can find the stylesheet from these other locations.

Subject: [xsl] Unable to resolve the XSL reference from MS Outlook e-mail
attachment on Win XP

I am hoping that someone can point me in the right direction:  I am
currently working on a project to send some XML Purchase Orders via e-mail.

I have run into an issue that appears to be isolated to MS Outlook when
running on XP.

When Outlook receives the e-mail with the attachment, we are unable to open
the XML document directly from the e-mail.  We get an error when it attempts
to resolve to the stylesheet (which was previously placed on the local hard
drive of the receiving machine in the specified directory).

The specific error we get is:

      The XML page cannot be displayed

      Cannot view XML input using XSL style sheet. Please correct the error

      and then click the Refresh button, or try again later.

      Access is denied. Error processing resource

We are being forced to save the XML document to the local hard drive, and
then are able to open it with the stylesheet formatting in place.

I know that the attachment is stored in C:\Documents and
Settings\<user>\Local Settings\Temporary Internet Files\OLFK17 so I browsed
to the actual XML temp file and tried opening it from there and get the same
error.  So I moved that very same file to a different directory and was able
to open it without any errors!

Anyone have any ideas about this?  Why would that temp directory be causing
this to occur?

Other e-mail clients, such as Lotus Notes or Outlook Express on a Win 9x/ME
machine, do not have a problem opening this same document.
