PSI says to update this. It tries and fails. I have verified that I have SP2. I tried to update to SP3 on the Microsoft website, but it would only download the html info file, not the installer.

My file msxml4.dll has version number 4.20.9876.0. The latest version is 4.30.2107.0. It is in the System32 folder.

This could be an issue after April 8 as noted in this blog: https://altonblom.com/s34e03/

This will fix it for you.

MSXML ISSUES

If required, the release note for MSXML 4 is here:
http://download.microsoft.com/download/A/2/D/A2D85...

Please note this SP was released before Windows 7 & 8 was produced therefore there is no mention of compatibility or support once installed - it works flawlessly with Windows 7 on both 32 & 64 Bit systems. I have NOT tested it on my Windows 8 PC because I have no old legacy programmes that require it to be installed.

If PSI gives a version number starting 4.2 that indicates that the very old MSXML 4 SP2 is installed which must be MANUALLY upgraded to MSXML 4 SP3 as follows:

Click this link: (please note that the system requirements for this download do state that Windows 7 is supported unlike the release notes)

http://www.microsoft.com/en-us/download/details.as...

Once open activate the clearly marked download link called MSXML.MSI - 2.3 MB.

Once installed run & rerun Windows Update - there are some additional patches for MSXML 4 SP3.

On completion PSI will show MSXML 4 as secure with version 4.30.2117.0. like this:
