foxpro 0: Class definition MSXML2.DOMDOCUMENT.4.0 is not found

I received this error on a Visual Foxpro 9 installation on Windows 7.  I found the update and fixed the problem, but why did this show up?  I've installed VFP 9 in the past without this error (Windows XP, Vista).  What does it affect?  Does it have any impact on regular database activities or basic programs you run in VFP?  I assume it only involves XML, which I don't use.

If you don't apply the update, does it only show-up if you use the Project Manager?

Appreciate any back ground I can get on this.  I want to understand this issue better.

This is a Microsoft driver to read and write from XML files. If you are not doing that then you need not worry about it.

It also downloads with other software maybe Office. I am not sure. Maybe you have an updated version.

Or maybe it needs this driver to complete installation. I think VFP 9 installer should check for these things before it installs itself.

Thanks so much.  It's just odd for this to pop up after having installed vfp over the years without seeing it.  Sure appreciate your help.
