Cannot Import msxml4.inf into Component Designer

Dear Readers,

I want to device a compoment for msxml 4.0 in the Component Designer.
It should be posible to import the inf-file...
So I downloaded msxml4.cab and extracted all the files: 3 dlls and and
inf-file.
When I try to import this - after some time - only errors appear.
btw: I notice the inf-file refers to "thiscab"

Is it possible to make a component this way and what goes wrong.

Tia, Jean.

Hi Jean,

You could try the component located here:

http://www.xpefiles.com/viewtopic.php?t=163

I think all that the INF does is specify the three dll's and that msxml4.dll
needs to be registered. This component does that. HTH,

Brad

Thanks Brad,

The inf file apears to be the same as distribted by Microsoft.
Somehow you managed to get something in the sld file. How?
Funny thing is that I can't see anything usefull in the Component Designer.
But with notepad I can see that there is something, so:
Never the less I've added it to my Data Base and then to my project.
In the Target Designer I can see some familiar stuff but also a filesize of
0...
May after the dependency checks... but ... that...is..s.l.o.w.

I will let you know if the sld file works or not., ther we're all happy.

Meantime maybe someone can convert inf file, see below, to something
importabele:

--8<------------------------------------------------
[Add.Code]
msxml4.dll=msxml4.dll
msxml4r.dll=msxml4r.dll
msxml4a.dll=msxml4a.dll

[msxml4.dll]
file-win32-x86=thiscab
clsid={88d969c0-f192-11d4-a65f-0040963251e5}
FileVersion=4,20,9818,0
DestDir=11
RegisterServer=yes

[msxml4r.dll]
file-win32-x86=thiscab
DestDir=11
FileVersion=4,10,9404,0

[msxml4a.dll]
file-win32-x86=thiscab
DestDir=11
FileVersion=4,10,9404,0
-->8------------------------------------------------

As you can see you are right about the 3 files, and registering one.

Tia, Jean

Brad,

One correction: "Funny thing is that I can't see anything usefull in the
Component Designer"
I was looking at an older file (previous try) Sorry.
Ok. that explains ont thing; but the file size of the dll's is still
zero...Why is that?
No errors in the depency check however, shall I build my image anyway?

Grtz Jean.

Hello,

I'm not sure why it would say zero size unless the repository was incorrect.
You should be able to import the SLD without modification and the repository
will be correct.

As for importing the INF, I didn't use the INF importer to create the
component. I used the INF for reference and created it by hand. Any
resources such as dll registration, run-once, etc can all be added by hand
to your custom component.

HTH,
Brad

I am not sure what you exactly meant by the "the file size of the dll's is
still zero" but be aware of a known issue with TD where it doesn't show the
right size for a component footprint (it shows 0) if you check the size on
the right side panel.

Thanks Brad,

I've thought of that later and tried to set a source path for the dll's.
But that didn't help me, or I did something wrong.

But the most simple way is to put the dll's in my repository.
I will try that and let you know.

Regards Jean.
