I have a vb project. When I tried to compile the project, it showed an error and the Project, References dialog opened up with Missin MSXML4.dll in the list.
I copied the MSXML4.dll file from another system to C:\Windows\System32 folder.
Tried to register. Showed error
Then I tried to compile the VB project. This time it compiled without error.
The log file was earler showing XML messages is now showing text with <Soap tag. Is this because I messed up with the MSXML4.dll?
If so, how can I rectify the same. I know I am in a soup.

Any help or guidance will be very helpful. Thanks in advance.

Download and install the MSXML package on the development machine.  You should install the same package on any client that will use the project.

After that I would probably remove the reference and re-add it to the vb project.  Without knowing how your project is supposed to be using the component, I can't tell you why the format of your log messages has changed.

MSXML 4 is not available with MDAC setup.  MDAC 6 installs MSXML 2.0.  The stand alone installation is the best answer for this question, IMO.
