How do I get the first processing instruction in an XML document, using Microsoft's DOM API?

For example:
<?xml version="1.0" standalone="yes"?>
<root>
  <?process action="ignore"?>
  <test/>
</root>

In this example I can get the "process" node alright, but the "xml" processing instruction I cannot.  The way I retrieve the XML nodes is by first getting the document element and then going through the tree.

Dim root
Dim xmlDoc
Dim processNode
 
Set xmlDoc = CreateObject("microsoft.xmldom")
xmlDoc.async = False
xmlDoc.load("example.xml")
'Set root to the XML document's root element, COLLECTION:
Set root = xmlDoc.documentElement
'Set processNode to the "xml" processing instruction ( in case of your example input )
Set processNode = root.previousSibling
