The cause of the error is that the Publisher_2010.xml file has an error in it. In the top section on line 10 (shown below) the <Document> element closing tag is not properly formatted.

 

<Documents Product="Publisher" ProductVersion="2010" IconUrl="Images\Product-Publisher.png" FullTitle="Microsoft Publisher" KeywordGuid="{1F0076A0-2FDA-45A0-97E5-95AED69205CE}">

To correct the problem you will need to add ">" to the end of the line so that it looks like this...</Document>
