Well Nick, let out the script before I had a chance to flick my eye over
it (possibly something to do with the fact I was out of the country and
hiding from emails at the time.), it should have full error protection,
it currently doesn't...

The likely suggestion is that you do not have MSXML registered for some
reason, or it's a version different to the one we expect.

http://jibbering.com/msxml/  should prompt you to install version 3,
which it certainly works with, I'll get the code changed to better report
errors aswell, and we should track this one down.

Cheers,

Jim.
