List of Microsoft XML Parser (MSXML) versions

This article lists the version numbers of Microsoft XML Core Services or the Microsoft XML parser (MSXML). Different versions of MSXML are included with various Microsoft products, such as Microsoft Windows, Microsoft Internet Explorer, Microsoft Office, and Microsoft SQL Server. MSXML is also updated when you install software updates for various Microsoft products.

 

Microsoft provides several different XML parsers. The MSXML parser is included in the Msxml.dll file, the Msxml2.dll file, the Msxml3.dll file, the Msxml4.dll file, the Msxml5.dll file, the Msxml6.dll file, and one or more resource files. Notice that Windows HTTP Services (Winhttp*.dll) is also included with some versions of MSXML.
The Microsoft XML parser is a Component Object Model (COM) implementation of the W3C DOM model. Two versions are associated with each parser: the release version of the MSXML parser and the actual file version of the DLL that contains the parser. The release version of the MSXML parser (for example, versions 2.5, 2.6, 3.0, 4.0, 5.0, and 6.0) identifies the milestone of development.
