Version Registry: Registry info is lost after a patch
Build: 9/24/99 SeaMonkey build 1. From http://jimbob/trigger2.html, click drop-down button and select f_addmacpatch_exe and click Trigger case button to set up file for patching 2. Checking the Version registry at this time shows that everything is fine so far 3. From http://jimbob/trigger2.html, click drop-down button and select f_macpatch_exe and click Trigger case button to patch file var regName = "macpatch_exe"; var vi = new InstallVersion(); var jarSrc = "NCSA Telnet 2.7b5x.gdf"; vi.init("220.127.116.11"); Install.StartInstall("Functional: f_macpatch_exe", "/f_macpatch_exe", vi, 0); f = Install.GetFolder("Program", "f_macpatch_exe"); err = Install.Patch(regName, vi, jarSrc, f, "SimpleText", true); Install.LogComment("Install Patch = " + err); RESULT: The file is patched successfully. The Install.log appears correct and accurate. The Version registry shows the expected absolute pathname "f_macpatch_exe". But a dump of this node shows nothing. EXPECTED RESULT: A dump of the node shows a leaf "macpatch_exe/SimpleText" complete with RefCount, Path, and Version.

3 years later... As a non-Netscape-employee, I have no idea what this bug means, but I suspect that it's no longer relevant. Resolved?
Patching is a feature that has not been implemented. At one time it was considered, and this bug was a result of it partially working. This bug is only relevant if the Patching feature is going to be pursued.
