I’ve just upgraded to Vista & VS2008 and don’t see in the forum where this has come up. MSXML6 is present but not msxml.dll. Is it safe to make the change??

Below is the error...

Automatically linking with Prof-UIS library: ProfUIS282ud.lib
(Professional User Interface Suite)
Prof-UIS native unicode character type support:
disabled (symbol __EXT_MFC_ENABLE_TEMPLATED_CHARS is not defined)
c:\dev\foss\prof-uis\profskin\extskinitem.h(41) : fatal error C1083: Cannot open type library file: ’msxml.dll’: No such file or directory

Another solution that will work regardless of what OS you develop on is to import the xml parser type library instead of a specific dll filename like:

#import <msxml.tlb>

In my opinion, this change should be incorporated into the "official" ProfUIS source.

The MSXML.DLL is present on the most of Windows OS versions. Windows Vista contains the MSXML6.DLL file. It’s recommended to use the MSXML.DLL file if you do not use version’s 6 features. You can get the MSXML.DLL file from Windows XP or 2000 if you have these versions or you can download it:
