    How to install MSXML 4.0?


    I recently reset my Windows and it uninstalled many essential software like Visual C++ and MSXML 4.0. I am trying to reinstall them back as they are needed for many of my software and games which were installed outside of C drive. Now I am unable to find the download link of MSXML. 4.0. Please guide me on how I can go about installing it?

    :)

  2. unable to install msxml 4 SP3

    Hi 58Spencer1

    My name is Andre Da Costa; an Independent Consultant, Windows Insider MVP and Windows & Devices for IT MVP. I'm here to help you with your problem.

    See if these steps help:

    Method 1: Download MSXML 4.0 from Microsoft update catalogue

    Navigate to the link
    https://www.catalog.update.microsoft.com/Search...


    Click on the Download button beside Security Update for Microsoft XML Core Services 4.0 Service Pack 3 for x64-based Systems (KB2758694)

    Select the language in which you want to download the update.

    Once the .exe file is downloaded, right click on the .exe file and select Run as Administrator.

    Follow the on screen instructions to install the update.

    Once the update is installed restart the computer.

    Method 2: Usually, we see 0x80070490 error if there are corruption in certain components of the operating system.

    We can run the DISM command to check for the corrupted components and repair them. To run the DISM command follow the steps mentioned below:

    Type Command prompt in the search bar.

    Right click on the Command Prompt icon and select Run as Administrator.

    Copy and paste the following command in Command prompt: Dism /Online /Cleanup-Image /RestoreHealth

    Once the process is completed restart the computer.

    Method 3: Install MSXML 4.0 in Compatibility mode.

    You can try installing MSXML 4.0 update in Compatibility mode. To install the update in Compatibility mode follow the steps mentioned below:

    Right-click on the .exe file of the update and select "Properties".

    Select "Compatibility" Tab.

    Place a check mark next to "Run this program in Compatibility mode" and select the appropriate operating system from the drop down list.

    Let the update install.

    Once the update is installed restart the computer.

  3. unable to install msxml 4 SP3

    I have had to re-install windows after a failed update locked me out of the OS.
    I have a new ssd and a fresh install of Win 10 Pro version 1809 build 17763.379, but I am unable to install an app that worked fine on the old system, version 1703 build 15063.483

    It requires msxml 4.0 Parser SP3 version 4.30.2117.0 or higher.
    The app attempts to install the correct version from Microsoft, but it fails.

    The app developers say to manually install the msxml.msi file from Microsoft.
    I've downloaded the file and attempted to install it but it does not work.

    If I look in Settings / Apps, MSXML 4.0 SP3 Parser appears to be installed, version number 4.30.2100.0

    If I look via windows explorer / Program Files (x86), there is a folder called MSXML 4.0 but it only contains the eula.

    If I look at Windows / System 32 / I can find the following .dll files:
    msxml3.dll
    msxml3r.dll
    msxml6.dll
    msxml6r.dll

    but no msxml4.dll

    I have also attempted this installation on a separate PC running Win10 Home, version 1809 build 17763.437 and it has the same issues, so I think this may be an incorrect windows setting?

    I really need to install the software that requires this version of msxml, so if anyone can suggest a way to get msxml 4.30.2117.0 installed and working correctly
    it would be much appreciated.
