Compile Error - Function or interface marked as restricted or the function uses an automation type not supported in Visual Basic

I received a piece of VB code that had the compile error listed in the subject.  It stopped on the statement
   logID = log.childNodes.Item(0).Text and highlighted "childNodes".
I think these preceding code lines have something to do with this statement.
   Dim RPCResult As IXMLDOMNode
   Dim logsAs  IXMLDOMNodeList
   Dim log As  IXMLDOMNode
   Set Logs = Reader.RPCResult.childNodes
I'm not much of a VB programmer so I'm kind of lost here.  Am I missing a reference?  The code utilizes the MS SOAP Toolkit and it said it required VB6 with SP4.  When I look at the Help->About, it doens't say anything about SP4.  It says the version is 8176.  Is this not the correct version?

May be you have to install MS SOAP tool kit (try doing it again, if already done also) and SP4 for vb6.

In your code, try by typing  
log.
(log followed by a dot without spaces)
See if you can get that childnodes method listed automatically.
