Running apprunner -installer shows no UI
I ran apprunner -installer on my NT box and it took a long time to startup. Don Bragg indicated to me that if there's only one profile to migrate, it won't show UI letting the user know what is happening. This is bad! There needs to be some kind of UI letting the user know what is (preferably a message box) happening, maybe even a way to cancel out of it.
Since the -installer flag is only used when the installer launches the app to do migration, I don't see a compelling need for a message box. If the migration is the cause of the delay, the existing plans for a progress dialog should suffice. A dialog that attempts to explain migration will only cause extra confusion in the majority of cases. Kevin, what do you think? Do you want a dialog to inform people we've migrated their profile before they enter activation?
The progress bar (with appropriate text in teh dialog) should suffice. No additional dialog needed. Migrating existing info is a normal and expected part of the upgrade process for nearly all mainstream software. thx, kevin
Don, do we have progress dialogs during migration yet?
This bug depends on bug 11282 which is the bug to add a progress dialog to the profile migration.

Oh yeah. This is fixed. I lost track of dependencies or whatever. The progressbar is in.
