Problems with MSXML - Unable to create XML Object

The Microsoft Compilers require MSXML 4 to be installed. Without it an error will be generated to indicate that the compiler cannot create an XML object or similar. This is often caused because MSXML 4 is not installed. Using the ADE Environment Checker that ships with ADE 1.47.07 should identify this.

However this problem can persist even though MSXML 4 appears correctly installed. This may be due to a registry error. The following thread documents the 'story' of one user with this issue and eventually the solution.

If you have this problem then please read this thread carefully before posting.
