Reporter, what build number was this exactly?  And where exactly int the program 
did you get the error message, was it before or after you choose the components 
to install? or where?

should have added.

it is after coponents are chosen.  I skipped chatzilla & email components ( 
won't work behind the firewall here anyway )  I had also chosen to delete the
previous installation directory.  

specifically, DR. Watson intercepted an error in setup.exe

Can you attach the drwatson.log file?  It should be located in your Windows 

ps. R.R.Aa my last night's fix for bug 19034 does not look like it would fix 
this bug.

I emailed the log as an attachment to  I doubt I can attach
from behind the firewall and don't want to delay until I get home

Ben, did this just started happening to you?  Does M16 work for you at all?

This is new for me.  I usually install the latest nightly 2 or 3 times a week.

I "think" my previous build I downloded Friday, but certianly sometime last 
week.  I wish I had noticed this bug before I grabbed today's, I usually give 
the bug list a read before I DL.  If I had, I would have renamed & kept the 
previous 17 and I could tell get the date from it.

I just now DL'd and installed:
 mozilla-win32-instal..> 07-Jul-2000 21:58   6.2M  
it is build 2000070720

It installed AOK,  it's pointing to /. at the moment.

Would you like me to try any other build(s)?

Dan, does this look like something related to bug #43272?  Yesterday's and 
today's build both installed fine for me on my NT4 sp4 machine.

forgot to mention specifically that Ben is having this problem on a FR system 
(given the User-Agent info).  I installed fine on my EN system.

agh, I meant Bily Becone is having problems on a FR system.

Ben, what language is the system that you're having problems with?

Ben, I was able to crash the installer with yesterday's 9pm build.  The 7/10/00 
9am and today's latest build both worked for me.  Can you try today's latest 
mozilla build?
