1. start with a DPA1 build that is installed to the default point c:\program files\Deer Park Alpha 1\ [I used the July 3rd build] 2. use the binary updater to upgrade to a current nightly For info on how to start using the binary updater http://weblogs.mozillazine.org/qa/archives/2005/07/deer_park_nighl.html 3. Use the updater to upgrade DPA1. Note that after the upgrade that the updater updated the files in the Deer Park Alpha 1 folder. 4. Note that that a current nightly installer will install to c:\program files\Deer Park Alpha 2\ 5. The updater should note that Firefox/DP is installed to the default dir and offer/automatically install to the new Dir A number of people are likely to download DPA2 which will have the binary update feature. If they upgrade to 1.1 Final via the updater this will leave them with Mozilla branded Firefox executables in the Deer Park Alpha 2 folder.
WONTFIX. Just because the default folder is X in the installer doesn't mean that's where it has to go. The updater doesn't need to know about where the default install location in the installer is. It also shouldn't move things anyway, since there's no simple way to discover scripts/shortcuts/etc pointing to the old location. Changing stuff like this is unnecessary, and only really affects trunk users, not end users.
