ms xml2 file
Posted 22 March 2001 - 18:50
In a recent install project I needed to include the msxml2.dll file as part of the project but during the self registration process I get the message that this file fails to register. Has anyone else had this experience? If so I would appreciate any input from anyone as this has been a headache for me in the last 24 hours.
Thanks in advance.

1. The MSXML2.DLL doesn't export the DllRegisterServer function, ie. it is not self-registrable
2. MSXML2.DLL requires some other components that are not available during self-registration phase
Have you tried manually selfregistering the DLL (ie. with the regsvr32.exe)?

I realized that one of the possibilities was a missing file, as you mentioned in your response and after a long trial and error session I learned that this msxml2.dll file will not self register if two other files,
msxml2a.dll and msxml2r.dll are not present on the target system . I included these two files with my setup as well. I hope this helps someone else out there.

you would just have to call the install from within yours.
