Installer launches browser and an error message comes up for a missing entry
point.  All I remember from the name of the entry point is that it included the
word "Cipher".  Subsequent launches did not display this error message.  (I
tried variations using mail only, nav only, and both.)

As the image of the error message demonstrates, I found another way to hit this
error.  In this case, I hit reply-all on a mail message using the 10/24 build. 
Don't know if that connection is meaningful, but at least I have the full name
of the entry point now :-)
I assume this is a trunk build and that you upgraded over an existing build, but
confirmation would be nice.

xprt is part of IM so this bug should get moved to bugscape by someone who can
do that. Do you notice any .DLL files in the program, COOL, or components
directories that are older than the others? That would give us a starting point.

CC'ing AIM folks to see if they know of any files recently added to or removed
from the build

We just updated cool either yesterday or the day before.  jelwell may know.

10/25 trunk build

Installed into a new directory, therefore all files are from the install and
have the same day.  The CDT dlls are the only old ones, presumably they were
packaged that way.

cc'ing justin as he might recognize this.

This looks like a dll mismatch. Perhaps there is another xprt.dll somewhere in
the path.

Can you try a clean install? Possibly you've already generated your XPCS
Registry.dat file from an older install?

Just make sure that C:\Program Files\Netscape\Netscape 6\Xpcs Registry.dat is
removed before installing. that might do the trick?

How does installing into a new directory differ from a "clean install"?  Have
you been unable to reproduce this?

I got the same message on Win2k today. (build 2001-10-29-06 Trunk)
I did a clean install (removed my existing profiles and registry .dat files, and
migrated a 4.7 profile to NS 6.2). I also had activated an account. When browser
started, I got the exact same error message.

Reassigning to Joe at his request. CC Lisa. 
Lisa, can you move this bug to Bugscape (per Joe)?
