System requirements

To run XML Extensions, you must have certain hardware and software installed on your computer.

The system requirements for Windows include the following:

The XML Extensions hardware and software requirements are the same as Visual COBOL. Both 32-bit and 64-bit versions are available.

Microsoft's XML parser, MSXML 6.0 or greater, is also required. (A schema processor and an XSLT transformation processor are included in the Microsoft MSXML 6.0 parser.)

Note: The MSXML 6.0 parser may fail to install correctly if the target system does not have either Microsoft Windows Installer or Internet Explorer installed. Both of these products are freely available from Microsoft. To obtain these applications, visit and search for the keywords "Windows Installer 2.0" or "Internet Explorer", as needed.
