According to this page it does *look* like MSXML has to be "installed"
(i.e. registered) in order to use COM in the first place :

Why is it your requirement to not register MSXML ? Ir's installed
along with IE6 anyway, which is the minimum browser on XP systems

Would it help to look at it the other way ? 

If you're running Perl or Perlscript (in IIS) then why not use the
CPAN sources of XML parsers native to Perl ? They'll be a better fit
I'm sure. For ideas, try XML::Parser or XML::LibXML classes
