How to redistribute the MSXML3.dll? RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello


    Currently am working on developing applications on Windows Mobile 6.0 Professional. I would like to know if we could redistribute MSXML3.dll within our application CAB file?

    The following link only talks about Windows XP, Vista and 7 Operating systems: http://www.microsoft.com/download/en/details.aspx?id=4804


    If we can redistribute the MSXML3.dll, then kindly let us know the procedure for the same with respect to Windows Mobile.


    Thanks and Regards

  • There's no device version of this DLL listed in "C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft Visual Studio 9.0\redist.txt", thus I would say you may not redistribute it.

    Next, on device you can't just drop some system DLL and expect it to work as there are most likely some dependencies missing and it would fail. 

    Finally, AFAIK MSXML3 ships in all WM devices starting WM 5.0, so there's no need to redistribute it:
