I had to reformat my WinXP SP2 thinkpad last Jan using the hidden partition method. I then installed SP3, which according to my reading should have included MSXML 6. I only have MSXML 4 SP2 in Add/Remove programs, tho. So I went to the MS download site for 6, but SP3 wasn't listed under supported systems. I'm thinking that it wasn't listed because 6 is supposed to be included w/ SP3.
MSXML versions are supposed to install without replacing or overwriting other versions, so even if some program for some reason installed MSXML 4 after I installed SP3 I should still have 6.
So, there's no problem w/ MSXML 6 and SP3, right? It's supposed to be better security-wise & in W3C Conformance. I'd like to install 6 and uninstall 4SP2, but I don't know if some program requires 4.
I'm assuming Firefox 3.5.6 doesn't have a problem because googling for Firefox 3.5 + MXSML 6 didn't result in any real hits.
