[mapguide-users] Copying resources from MapGuide Enterprise to MapGuide OS

The data files in the "Repositories/Library" folder is a dbxml database, 
and not intended for
reading or writing by anything but MapGuide (eg. don't modify it with a 
text editor).

The document it refers to the layer, which is an xml document (stored in 
the dbxml).
The numbers are indeed (linenumber, columnnumber), but in the 
LayerDefinition xml document.

I think the problem is caused by using an older version of Maestro which 
does not recognize
LayerDefinition version 1.3.0 (which Studio creates).

If you use Maestro 2.0 beta 1, it should open the resource just fine.

If not, you can get the actual resource xml by visiting the html test form:

Use the GetResourceContent operation to get the xml, and respond with a
mail linking to the xml, and I will see if I can find obvious errors.
