Using MSXML in a VS 6.0 C++ app

Using MSXML in a VS 6.0 C++ app

Using MSXML in a VS 6.0 C++ app

I have never used MSXML, so bear with me.  I have a small C++ app that receives a message via another app.  The message received is XML format but is contained in a string and not passed as an XML doc.  Stuck with this, nothing I can do about this part.  

So, I need to implement MSXML, I am hoping this is the right path, to load the string into an XML doc and parse through it.  Does anyone have or know of a simple example of how to do this?  The xml string I receive only has 2 elements, so this does not have to be a very involved example with lots of bells and whistles.  Just looking for the basics.

BTW, I am using MSXML 6.0.

Thanks a lot in advance for the help.

RE: Using MSXML in a VS 6.0 C++ app

Don't really know whether VS6 supports MSXML6.  How complicated is your XML?  Is it just a few <> with no complicated stuff like DTDs and XSDs?

If it is simple, try tinyxml.  It is so simple, I got it running in 30 minutes.  Comes with examples, dsws (VC6) and slns (VC7/8).
