Xml Visualizer v.2 improves the standard Xml Visualizer in Visual Studio 2005, 2008, 2010, 2012 and 2013.

"That's Hot! Every Developer should go and have a nicer Debugger Visualizer" - Channel9
"This is a real gem. I have been copying and pasting XML from the text visualizer to VSTO because the built-in XML visualizer pretty much sucks" - Asher Barak
"Developers can definitely be more productive if they use this tool" - .Net Developer
"For anyone who works a lot with XML, this extension is an absolute must. Good job." - LieberLieber
"If you've ever needed to work with XML files in Windows, and can't afford XMLSpy, get this now. Even if you don't have Visual Studio, the standalone app is worth its weight in bits." - SWiK Review

Xml Visualizer v.2 is a free debug visualizer for Visual Studio 2005, 2008, 2010, 2012 and 2013. It uses Internet Explorer as Xml rendering engine and features many improvements over the standard Xml Visualizer:

- Execution of XPath queries and use of XPath functions
- Create, edit and apply XSL transformations
- Editor with both Xml and XSLT debugging capabilities
- Inject Xml back into the running application
- Validate Xml and XSL against XSD
- Search functionality

Xml Visualizer v.2 works in all editions of Visual Studio 2005, 2008, 2010, 2012 and 2013 including Express Editions.
XML Visualizer v.2 is also available as a standalone application and as a user control.

Please see Release notes for installation instructions.
