    MSXML2.DOMDocument

    Does anyone know what this component comes with, or should I say what software installs this on one's computer, Windows? IE?

    We want to use it in a web application, but I am concerned with people not having it installed, can anyone shed some light on the subject.

    Thanks in advance.

    I have no idea
    IE5 and later?

    Only thing to read on this page is that "...different versions of the Microsoft Windows operating system and Microsoft Internet Explorer are released with different versions of MSXML." Thank you, MS

    Thanks for that. I was afraid of that. A co-worker says its standard with IE 5.5 and above, so I will go with that. Thanks.

    I think that (what your coworker says; IE5.5) can be correct.
    If I remember correctly, you had to run xmlinst.exe, and also update MDAC (?), to make all msxml stuff work on older systems (e.g. NT4 + IE5). But that was like... eh... more than 3 years ago. Ergo: This will only be a problem for 1-2 % of the users?

    There's another problem for you, I think; what about non-IE users?
    You have to use createDocument (?) instead of new ActiveXObject(...) in Mozilla.
    Of course, someone else has already written a common interface:

    Really nice

    Only problem left; what about really old browsers that doesn't support the try...catch in javascript?

    Non-issue, this is a web-based software application where minimum requirements will be set, for example, IE5.5+,its not for joe public.

    As for the remark about private messaging, Iam quite aware of the ability to turn off private messaging. I don't want to turn it off, I want poeple to use the forums for questions pertaining to development. I don't care if people pm me for things other than questions that would be better suited for the forums.
