My new package need to depend on MSXML 4.0 or higher, what's the best way to set the dependency?

best way would be to include the xml4 merge module into your package

Well, it's best if we can make it more flexable - not only xml4, if we include a merg module, what if there are xml5 and xml6 in the future?

I think there must be a way to get the information on what version of xml the system has, that's what I want...

Thanks for your advice anyway ...

xml is always installed side-by-side, so if you need a specific version, it would not help to install the latest version...

as it is installed side-by-side, there are dll's for every xml-version, so you could not just simply check one file.

if you really want the latest version, you would have to check the activex registration for msxml2.domdocument, you will find a pointer there to the latest version (though i can not really see what the effect determining the latest version is, shipping with the version your application was created should do a better job)
