Default MSXML4.0: 1) Getting Started & 2) First XSL & HTML

Hi all,
I have 2 computer systems:
(i) Microsoft Windows 2000 on NT 4.0 LAN in my office.
    We have Microsoft Office 2003 installed in the LAN and
    MS Internet Explorer 6.

(ii) Microsoft Windows XP Pro in my home computer.
     I have Microsoft 2003 and Visual C++ .NET 2002 installed
     in my home computer and AT&T Internet provider.

I have just downloaded and installed the following to (i) and (ii):
MSXML 4.0 Service Pack 2 (Microsoft XML Core Services)
File Name: File Size
msxml.msi 5166
msxml4msms.exe 768
MSXML4SP_RelNote.htm 23
msxmlcab.exe 723
msxmlsdk.exe 3392

Question #1: I can not see the MSXML 4.0 program from the "Start" -"Programs" to do the XSLT in both (i) and (II). Do I have the MSXML 4.0 installed properly in (i) and (ii)?

Question #2: I have 2 kinds of XML files: one for MS Word 2003 and the other for MS Excel 2003 and MS Access 2003. How can I get the XSLT started via MSXML 4.0 to get the output in HTML, Word, Excel or Access?

Please help and advise.

Thanks in advance,

Scott Chang

I don't have an answer to your second question, but as to the first: you won't see MSXSL in your Start menu - it's a command line program. Assuming you have it installed correctly, open a command prompt, navigate to the folder where your xml and xsl files are, and use this syntax to transform:

msxsl inputXML.xml tranformXSL.xsl -o output.html

where inputXML is the xml file, transformXSL is your xsl file, and output is the name of the html file you want to create. There's also a way to run transforms from within IE6 - I think you just need to open the xml file in IE6, assuming that you have the stylesheet linked into the xml file like so:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="ISO-8859-1"?>
<?xml-stylesheet type="text/xsl" href="transformXSL.xsl"?>

should be the first two lines of your XML file.
