UPDATING MSXML 4.0

MSXML4 was shipped as an independent, downloadable SDK targeted at Independent Software Vendors and third parties. It is an upgrade for but not a replacement to MSXML3 as version 3 still provides legacy features. Versions 6,4 and 3 may be run concurrently.

MSXML 4.0 SP3 is the most recent version released in March 2009. SP2 support expired in April 2010.

The download link (clearly marked MSXML.MSI - 2.0 MB) is here***:
http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/en/details.aspx...

Please note this SP was released before Windows 7 was produced therefore there is no mention of compatibility - it works flawlessly with Windows 7 on both 32 & 64 Bit systems

Now run Windows Update - there are some additional patches for SP3.

Once installed run a full PSI scan & PSI will pick it up as secure with version 4.30.2114.0

Update 1 17:34 22/08/2012

*** This download link explains the methods of installation with more details if you read the Release notes - the key statement being MSXML 4.0 SP3 is not installed or upgraded by default.
