The error message means exactly what it says.  Your schema document
(Test.xsd) evidently looks like this:

<schema xmlns="c:/Program Files/XSV">

It should look like this:

<schema xmlns="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema">

This will _not_ cause XSV to go to the internet, and will work just
fine on an isolated LAN.
