I got the downloads for both libxml2 and libxslt from official sites.But there is no proper documentation on how to install them in windows environment.I didn't find sufficient information anywhere in the articles too.
There are no related threads in stackoverflow too.Not sure why the executables are not recognized after setting windows PATH environment variables.I'am waiting from the jquery team response on how it was built.
If you just want offline documentation, you might try Velocity, which can give you offline documentation for just about anything. I can't vouch for it, as I use Dash on macOS, but the author of Dash recommends Velocity for Windows users.
Few serious software developers use Windows - unless writing software for Windows!
You may find it useful to install a Linux VM on your Windows computer. You can use VMWare, or a free solution like VirtualBox. It would be much easier then to install these libraries that were designed for Unix/Linux systems (macOS is a variant of BSD Unix) than to go through the gyrations needed to install them on Windows.
Sad news today for users of Dash, though. It was pulled from the App Store today. The developer tried to migrate his account from a personal one to a corporate one, and Apple balked at something or another, claiming "fraudulent activity". There's an active discussion on Slashdot. Speculation is either the new company name (the author hasn't mentioned what it is) is too close to another company (Dash Labs, Inc.) that makes completely unrelated software, or else competitor stuffing fake reviews in order to make the author look bad. (Unfortunately, a lot of this nonsense goes on, and they are CLEVER. Instead of stuffing bad reviews about your competition, stuff GOOD reviews about your competition, to make it look like your competitor is cheating!)
Dash for macOS is still available for direct download. Dash for iOS is no longer available, at least for now.
I think too many software developers are dependent on Dash for this to go unfixed. Apple is going to get an earful! I find Dash handy, and really great if you are working on an airplane, etc. A colleague uses it when working from his sailboat!
Thank you so much for the reply.Yes I followed the instructions for windows installation but still Im facing the issues with xmllint:all task.I want to edit each example provided by jQuery API Doc project so that i can test different features and options.Is it Velocity software(https://velocity.silverlakesoftware.com/) provides the checkout of API document and editing the examples?
Sorry but yeah, the Windows setup is pretty messy. You are much better off trying to use the prebuilt VM. I've gotten most of it to work in the past by moving the xml dll to the \windows\system32 folder, so it finds the dll. But it's been so long that I can't remember most of the details.
