Mozilla/Installer requirement not listed: Contextual
(SeaMonkey :: Build Config, defect)
Mac System 9.x
(Reporter: scully, Assigned: timeless)
From Bugzilla Helper: User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Macintosh; U; PPC; en-US; rv:1.0.0) Gecko/20020529 BuildID: 2002052917 When installing, the installer will quit with an error message "ContextualMenu Library Not Found" if the Contextual Menus Extension has been turned off. While the install notes mention "Do not install with Extensions off", I think it should explicitly list this dependency, or at least refuse to install without the library present. Instead it got me most of the way through the process and the errored out. This is obviously a minor minor issue. Thanks for the good work, I really enjoy the program. Reproducible: Didn't try Steps to Reproduce: 1. Turn off "Contextual Menu Extension" in Extension Manager. 2. Restart. 3. Run Net Installer. Actual Results: It errors out of the install, with a message "ContextualMenu Library Not Found". Expected Results: It should have warned me before running the installation process. It also probably should have done nothing, since I don't see how Contextual Menus are used in the installer.

Afaik Mozilla requires it because NSStdLib.shlb referenecs it. And afaik that's not in the release notes either. file:///I:/tempoverflow/mac/ppc_cvs/mozilla/lib/mac/NSStdLib/src/macstdlibextras.c 1.12 <email@example.com> 01 May 2000 17:37 Extra check to make sure contextual menu manager is installed before initting it. Apps tested: Full Installer, Mozilla [installed]. Not tested: Net instsller (I trust you and have no patience for it) smfr: if you don't want to work on this, send it my way and i'll look for a hero.

Quoth Steve Dagley: "The Mac installer code was never Carbonized and there is no intention to ever change that." http://groups.google.com/groups?threadm=yahoo_com-77F6E8.09344011022003%40h-204-29-187-156.netscape.com http://groups.google.com/groups?threadm=avkj4k%24ihs2%40ripley.netscape.com
