MSXML C++ Parser (IE3.0 vs IE4.0)

I have searched high and low for an resolution to this dilema:

The MSXML C++ parser only works if IE4.0 is installed.  I am trying to use
the parser for data exchange between applications all residing on a local
machine.  I am not concerned about browsing at this time, just the parsing
and creation of the XML files.

The IXMLDocument::put method fails if IE3.0 is installed.  I have installed
and registered the msxml.dll component and am assuming the problem is
caused because it depends on other components.

Has anyone been able to parse a local XML file using the msxml.dll via VC++
without having IE4.0 installed?  If so, what other components are require? 
(Note: the simple XML VC++ program I am developing works great when IE4.0
is installed).

Any response will be greatly appreciated.
