Windows 7: Update XML Core services ?

04 May 2015   #11

Microsoft Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit 7601 Multiprocessor Free Service Pack 1
Microsoft XML Core Services 6.0

Microsoft XML Core Services 4.x has been superceded by Microsoft XML Core Services 6.x

Re Secunia: Can't comment on the download link they offer. All I can say is that Microsoft XML Core Services 6 is installed and working on my 64 bit Windows 7 machine. I've left Microsoft XML Core Services 4.x installed but if anyone wants me to remove it for test purposes I'm willing to try.

See security bulletin here:

May I safely uninstall MSXML 4.x?

As with everyone else, Secunia PSI flags MSXML 4.x as EOL.

I updated to MSXML6.x, may I now safely uninstall MSXML 4.x?

If flagged it up for me too. See earlier post. I have actually removed it with no issues. End of life just means that it will not get any more patches or security updates. Here's what I have currently:

I'd say install MSXML 6 and remove MSXML 4. You can always reinstall MSXML 4 if you experience any issues with any program that installed MSXML 6.
