I updated to 2014-12-23 nightly from 2014-10-29 using custom installer. 
https://ftp.mozilla.org/pub/mozilla.org/thunderbird/nightly/2014-12-23-03-02-00-comm-central/thunderbird-37.0a1.en-US.win32.installer.exe

On startup I get error dialog with
 Windows cannot find ... uninstall\helper.exe

uninstall\helper.exe is indeed missing from the uninstall directory
Keywords: regression
I updated yesterday with the built-in installer and after launching Daily today, I get this error.

Updated yesterday to 20141226030201.
Used 20141219030203 before.
"uninstall" folder exists in Daily 20141221 but not in 20141222

Likely a regression from c-c bug 741340 (Allow crosscompiling for Windows without NSIS)
