Difference between msxml versions?

I have an ASP page that refers to MSXML2:

Set oHTTP = Server.CreateObject("MSXML2.XMLHTTP")

All of a sudden, I get this error message:

msxml3.dll
error '800c0005'
The system cannot locate the resource specified.

Version 3 is not even referenced in the ASP code. Thinking that the latest version is best, I downloaded msxml4 from Microsoft's site, and changed the references in the ASP code to v4:

Set oHTTP = Server.CreateObject("MSXML4.XMLHTTP")

But, now I get a different error message:

Server object error 'ASP 0177 : 800401f3'
Server.CreateObject Failed
/flight/index.asp, line 213
Invalid class string

What am I doing wrong?

>>Set oHTTP = Server.CreateObject("MSXML4.XMLHTTP")<<
That is because it should be declared as:
Set oHTTP = Server.CreateObject("Msxml2.ServerXmlHttp.4.0")

But you were told that in your duplicated question here:

When I asked this question, I did not know that I was making a mistake in the syntax, and was starting to think that v4 was not backward compatible. And, now I'm getting an "Access denied" using the object's Send method (which I was not getting when v2 was working a week ago).

Also, I don't understand why, when the code refers to v2, how can the error message refer to v3?

Also, I don't understand why the error just popped up, seemingly, out of the blue. The only thing I can think of is that my laptop took an automatic Windows update last week, and that MS clamped down something security-related which caused v2 to quit working. I guess that sounds a little paranoid (about MS and their updates).

I was hoping to discover if there is a difference in the functionality of v2, v3, v4.

(And, I do appreciate the help on the syntax)

Simply put MSXML2 refers to all versions from v 2.6 and above.  There is no MSXML3 or MSXML4 or MSXML5 or ... (well you get the picture)

>>I was hoping to discover if there is a difference in the functionality of v2, v3, v4.<<
Sure there is.  It is all covered in the documenttaion for each new version.
