Build: 7/22/99 SeaMonkey build

1. From http://jimbob/trigger2.html, trigger
   http://jimbob/jars/a_execute_mac.jar

Using form:
Install.StartInstall("Acceptance: a_execute_mac", "acceptance", vi, 0);
err = Install.Execute("SimpleText");
Install.LogComment("Execute returns: " + err);

RESULT:
SimpleText is not launched.  "xpinstall" is not found from Temporary Items.
I'm not sure if it has been "cleaned up" already.  The Install.log shows the
following:
---------------------------------------------------------------------------
http://jimbob/jars/a_execute_mac.jar     --     07/23/1999 14:44:41
---------------------------------------------------------------------------
Acceptance: a_execute_mac

** Execute returns: 0
Item [1/1]  Executing: Webbies:Temporary Items:xpinstall

Install **FAILED** with error -2142044199

Install **FAILED** with error -2142044199
Finished Installation  07/23/1999 14:44:42

EXPECTED RESULT:
SimpleText is launched.  The Install.log indicates a successful installation
without any error messages.

I think Doug is already working on this so I'm reassigning

samir, once your applesingle fixes are in, can you verify this?  I think not
having as is the "real" problem.
I tried to verify this after nsAppleSingleDecoder went in last night. It was
choking in other places: libreg I believe. I think we are trying to register an
nsInstallExecute object. Not sure if I'll get to this in M9.
Jimmy,
Does execute work on other platforms with recent builds? Win32?
Target Milestone: M9 → M10
Not on critical path of install process demo. Moving to M10.
