Problem running an application that uses MSXML4 on win98

Hello experts,

I have an application that is written in VB6, using MSXML4. The compiled .exe runs well on Windows NT4 Workstation SP6a, Windows  2000 and Windows XP.

When I run it on Windows 98 with IE5.5 I get a "ActiveX component can't create object or return reference to this object" (Error 429).

I installed VB6 on the windows 98 machine (which untill then was a "clean" QA machine, with no development tools). Through the debugger, I discovered that the error is raised on the first occasion that an object from the MSXML2 library is accessed:

'...
Dim domDoc As New MSXML2.DOMDocument40
func1 domDoc, "data.xml" '<--causes runtime error 429

Any ideas why this happens?

I think the DOMDocument40 is not supported .
try to work with
MSXML2.DOMDocument30

But I'm not sure.

Have you installed MSXML4 on the box. Also, you would require to install Windows Installer 2.0 before you install MSXML4. And avner is not correct, MSXML4 is supported on Windows 98.

The only thing that does not work on Windows 98 is WinHTTP; this is only installed on server-class O/S which are Windows NT, Windows 2000 and Windows XP Professional.
