Microsoft provides several different XML parsers. The System.xml parser and the System.XML.XmlReader XML parser are included with the Microsoft .NET Framework 2.0. The MSXML parser is included in the Msxml.dll file, the Msxml2.dll file, the Msxml3.dll file, the Msxml4.dll file, the Msxml5.dll file, the Msxml6.dll file, and one or more resource files. In some versions of MSXML Windows HTTP Services (Winhttp*.dll) is also included.
The Microsoft XML parser is a Component Object Model (COM) implementation of the W3C DOM model. The XML parser actually parses the xml files and if the MSXML.dll file is absent, the system might throw up errors while loading XML files. Two versions are associated with each parser: the release version of the MSXML parser and the actual file version of the DLL that contains the parser.
