Now that you have IE 6, you can install FormsPlayer and run with that, too.

Hi again,

Thanks but I had already checked that.

I have msxml4.dll, msxml4a.dll and msxml4r.dll in C:\WINNT\System32 - it's a
Win2k machine. All of the files show version as MSXML 4.0 SP1.

Is there any easy way to check if IE 5.5 is "seeing" the correct version of
MSXML4? Unfortunately the versioning tips on netcrucible.com don't extend to
service packs of MSXML4.

I was hoping for a follow up response from IBM but have solved the problem
myself.

By upgrading from IE5.5 with MSXML4 Sp1 to IE6 the problem goes away. I can
run all the AlphaWorks examples without the previously evident scripting
errors.

I didn't test between my previous installation of IE5.5 and after applying
all the security etc updates and the update to IE6, so perhaps there is one
update to IE5.5 that is critical to the AlphaWorks browser component running
correctly.

Certainly, in my experience, IE5.5 (which had some but not all MS updates
applied) with MSXML4 Sp1 doesn't work with the AlphaWorks XForms samples.

IBM might want to consider specifying IE6 as necessary for the AlphaWorks
package, since it is evident that it doesn't work on all IE 5.5 installs.

Having said all that it is very nice to have an XForms implementation (I
haven't tested how much is implemented yet) that will run in a conventional
browser.
