Platform: Win32 on Win98 and WinNT 4.0 (I did not try Win95) Build: 1999-04-22-17 Problem: The installer program does not install the correct base.zip that is located in the same directory as the install.exe. For example todays, Install.exe from the 1999-04-22-17 directory installs the base.zip from the /current directory. This is confusing to QA because, a) an un-informed QA engineer will think he is installing the 1999-04-22-17 but he is actually getting whatever build is in the current directory b) it make it harder for QA, especially installer QA, to test a specific build. c) if you want to run the Install.exe, you have to check what is in the current directory which most likely will contain a later build b/c release engineering builds constantly d) it delay testing of the released build. Sean Su explain the behavior of the Install.exe the last time I had problems running the install.exe around the M4 time frame. Work around: You must manually download the base.zip and uncompress the files. Steps to reproduce problem: 1) Download the install.exe from ftp://sweetlou/products/client/seamonkey/windows/32bit/x86/1999-04-22-17 2) Run install.exe 3) Follow the install program For me, it installs only the talkback files which Chris Yeh said was in the 4/23 build.
This is as designed. However, there is a missing feature that is currently being worked on to be able to install base.zip if there is one in the local directory.
