Description

20 years ago
Today's 82712 builds hang on launch unless you run with the -ProfileManager
extension and then select your profile every time.

This is happening on win95 and win98 only.

Last thing on the console windows is:

Profile Manager : Profile Wizard and Manager activities :End

actually it says activites, there is a spelling error

By the text from the console, this is clearly not a hang in profile manager
since we've printed the message indicating we're done.  I'm sending this to
buster on the theory he knows something about the spell checker message you
mentioned.

no, I just meant that activities was spelled incorrectly in the console, it has
nothing to do with the spell checker, sorry for the confusion

We'll give it to jevering to figure out.

Don, Warren, this is hanging somewhere in the apllication startup process.  It
could be Necko related, could someone take a look here.

this is not fixed, it is still happening with 8/31 builds. It appears to have
something to do with creating new windows, perhaps.

p.s. it is driving me crazy

Radha, this happens for me too.  Any idea what could be wrong on Win95/98
systems?

update: running with -ProfileManager does not appear to be a panacea, it often
fails this way also, before you even get to the Profile Manager screen. The last
thing you see when this happens is Profile Wizard and Manager activities:Begin

I have tested this with this morning's 1999090108 build on my Win98 machine and
the problem has been fixed.  I am resolving this fixed. If you all agree, this
can then be verified.
