@rob.steven It is clear that the file named prosight.xml is not a well-formed XML file. To confirm, just navigate to the file's location and double-click on it to open. You will see that the file is invalid. Normally, the problems like this are caused by whatever process is used to create the file which fails to take care of entitizing the special characters, such as ampersand, \<, etc.
