Using Build 2000-08-24-04, profile migration is not happening. I did a "clean" install of the build, the profile manager screen came up with a list of my 4.x profiles, I selected an existing profile and hit "Start Netscape 6". Instead of seeing the profile migration progress dialog, I was immediately taken to the Activation page. After Seamonkey started, I went into Mail, and none of the email or news accounts I had set up in my 4.x profile were present in Seamonkey. Build 2000-08-24-04 on WinNT (commercial). Steps to reproduce: 0. Delete the "Netscape 6" and "Users50" folders and their contents, delete mozregistry.dat. 1. Install Seamonkey (I did a "Complete" install). 2. At the profile manager screen, select a profile that exists in Communicator 4.x (I am using 4.72). 3. Hit "Start Netscape 6". Expected: The profile migration progress dialog box appears, and after migration is complete, an Activation screen appears. Actual: The profile migration progress dialog does not appear - you are taken immediately to Activation. Note that after Seamonkey starts, and you then go into Mail (Tasks | Mail) none of your 4.x email or newsgroup accounts have been migrated.
Sol, Try removing HOME\mozilla\registry.dat file - HOME may be c:\winnt. this file is recording profile data now and may have your profile data from last migration.
Grace - thanks - that did the trick. Did something change in the last couple of days? I've never had to delete "registry.dat" before to invoke profile migration.
yes, profile information now stored in $HOME/mozilla/registry.dat - so when doing a new migration this file must be removed for seamonkey to look to 4.x registry (changes in last week- 8/16 or so- still changing) Don, why not mark this worksforme?
Marking INVALID since this is really a test case problem and not really a WORKSFORME (since I get the same results as Sol if I don't delete the registry.dat file)
