    I had this exact problem once. Try this:

    Open the Command Prompt (important: as administrator!) Type "cd \Windows\SysWOW64\" (without the quotes) and hit enter.

    Then type "regsvr32 MSXML4.dll" and hit enter again. It should say something along the lines of it being registered successfully.

    What I did is created a shortcut to it and then I right clicked on it -> Run As Administrator.

    I'll be editing a video into this post showing how shortly.

    Sorry for the bad quality; CamStudio + Powerpoint 2003 + ImageShack produces bad things, apparently. Anyway, the path in the 2nd frame there is 'C:\Windows\System32\cmd.exe'.

    TY Musketeer.

    Here is an easy way to run this: Put this into a .BAT file and then right-click on it with Run as Administrator (you must be logged into an admin account to do this).

    To create a bat file paste this into Notepad then save as all file types regsvr.bat on your desktop.

    C:
    CD\Windows\SysWOW64
    regsvr32 MSXML4.dll
    CD\
    Exit

    You will either get an "OK" or error when running this. If it still won't run your user account doesn't have full admin prividleges.

    I just did it the other way because I always keep a Shortcut for the Command Prompt on my desktop -- I use it all the time. I didn't think about making a .bat, but that is probably easier. :P

    I got this error like 3 years ago and all I did was download "MSXML 4.0"from one of those .dll sites and put in the system folder somewhere...Although this isn't the "Safest" Way to fix it,it works.

    Well, he stated he had 64-bit Windows 7 (like me), and he described it as exactly the same situation I had had -- it had been working but just stopped one day, and that was the way I fixed mine. I was aware that this was a possible fix, though (I had had to do a ton of research to fix mine, so I of course ran into that fix also).

    Some folks with win 7 seemed to have to do it this way (as opposed to the kb article in the faq) to get it to work properly.  Having said that, thanks for the help gents, much appreciated.

    Open the command prompt as an administrator and type in the following:

    sfc /scannow

    after it finishes reboot your computer.

    Undertoker, the error that you gave us means you're not running the .bat as admin. To run it, right click on the .bat and use "Run as Administrator".

    Another good call Musk, as usual. I always assume that my instructions are followed precisely then when they don't seem to work go on to the next step. I'm a better technician that tech support guru in this as I oftentimes fail to factor in human psychology.
