I am current on build 2002022203, but I've seen this in earlier builds. 
Happened with the current XPI (Feb 26, 2002):

1. Go to
2. Click the link to install the XPI.
3. Watch install progress.

Almost everything happens as expected.  The install cleanly makes it through all
phases until the very end of the "Finishing install... please wait." phase. 
Then it gives an error, code 999.  The install seems to have succeeded, as I can
run it.  This may be due to earlier installs, however?

Repeating the above procedure usually fails, but occasionally succeeds.  Once it
succeeds, it doesn't seem to fail again, but I haven't tested it that much.  I
experience this problem usually when I update my browser version, as I need to
install the XPI again.

I've asked about this in netscape.public.mozilla.xpinstall, we'll see if we get
an answer. 
I imagine that the windows installer doesn't delete the old installation, so its
getting installed twice.  Just a guess though.

According to (I
don't know if that applies here), but error code 999 is "The files were
installed, but one or more components were in use. Restart the computer and
Communicator to complete the installation process. On Windows NT, you may only
need to restart Communicator as long as you did not replace operating system
files."  That makes sense in this case, but I don't know how to solve the
problem. I imagine if you had quit Mozilla before installing the new version,
things would be OK.

OK, that was the problem and I've added in a check for it.
That error doesn't show up any longer.
