10/25 trunk 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)?
