in reference to: http://ftp.mozilla.org/pub/mozilla/nightly/latest/mozilla-win32-installer.exe 29-Aug-2000 06:33 6.6M I downloaded , no problem. executed the installer, no apparent problems. I chose to delete the previous instalation, custom: no chatzilla, no mail & news profile manager automatically launched, I chose a profile. Mozilla hangs on the rectangle window with the fire breathing gecko. I've killed the process with task manager & tried relaunching the ap, same problem. I rebooted, downloaded a second time, installed again, same results

ssu, this is only happening with the installered version of the binary... if you use a zip file of dist, things work great. I'll try to compare the directories and see if i can spot glaring ommissions in jars/dlls

i bet a chrome file changed and the .mn files are out of date. help me find out what changed, dprice.
Assignee: asa → dprice
the installer is not generating the all-foo.rdf files or the user-foo.rdf files in chrome/ and the installed-chrome.txt is not going away after first 'launch'. The zip is working fine, and moving it's .rdf's to the installer's directory made the installer work fine.

installer worked fine on linux build 2000-08-29-08-m18
This also occurs on Commercial Win32 /2000-08-29-08-M18/ build

installed-chrome.txt isn't there? That's not right. Was it there on Monday? If it was there on Monday, then I don't think it is the fault of jar packaging. The only changes we made on Monday were to make-jars.pl and correcting some jar.mn files. They don't touch that file. If it wasn't there on Monday, then I'd point the finger of blame at the installer changes that warren did on Friday night. I'm not that familiar with it, but I'm willing to lend a hand.
Sorry, it is there, and is not going away after first launch. If I understand correctly, it should go away, and be replaced with the user-*.rdf and all-*.rdf files, which is not happening.
installed-chrome.txt not going away means the failure/hang happens before the chrome registry wakes up and does its stuff. This might be very useful in narrowing down where the error is. Hyatt: when/where is the chrome registry stuff kicked off?
Mark blocker: per kerz, there is no workaround so we don't have any builds after Friday (8/25) that we can test AIM in.
