Description

15 years ago
User-Agent:       Mozilla/4.0 (compatible; MSIE 5.01; Windows NT 5.0)
Build Identifier: http://ftp.mozilla.org/pub/mozilla/releases/mozilla1.4/mozilla-win32-1.4-installer.exe

I've been using mozilla 1.4 rc3 on this machine, however I just reinstalled 
windows, and now when I install any version of mozilla (first I tried 1.4 
final, then 1.3.1) mozilla does not launch.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install win2k
2. Install sp4
3. Install mozilla
4. Try to use mozilla

Actual Results:  
Mozilla does not lunch. It terminates instantly -- even before win2k's task 
manager on highest update speed can list it as running

Expected Results:  
Launched!

No error messages are given. No event log messages, etc.

is this a clean install (i.e. in an empty directory) ?

It's a fresh installation -- the directory of the previous mozilla install was 
removed
Do you also removed the directory under c:\docoments and settings\ ?

Yes. The "Documents and Settings" for the user I'm running under is completely 
new + fresh with no previous mozilla data
