If you want to use side-by-side installation to deploy applications that use MSXML 4.0 to computers running Windows XP and Windows Server 2003, you must create an application manifest and deploy it with your application.
Hi,

The application manifest is an XML file that:

a)Uniquely identifies the application

b) Describes dependencies on specific versions of side-by-side assemblies



Refer the below link to know how to create a manifest
