Build: 4/9/99 Engineering build 1. Go to http://jimbob/jars and click on an8bitscript_currentuser.jar f = Install.GetFolder("Current User", "charset"); RESULT: Crash. Log file shows no jar activity. EXPECTED RESULT: A folder named "charset" is created and populated with files as described from install script. There are some target folders that work fine.
Changing QA Contact from Grace to Jimmy.
I have fixed the Current Usertarget of GetFolder(). However, the jar still crashes due to bug 6661. I have modified the jar to work around this problem which verifies that this bug is fixed. You can find this modified jar here: http://grok/u/dougt/xpinstall/an8bitscript_currentuser_mod.jar
Build 6/1/99 Windows I am reopening this report to inquire why the modified jar fails while the unmodified one is now successful. I'm crashing immediately when triggering the modified jar. However, unlike bug http://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=5577, triggering the unmodified jar now behaves as expected. The Install.log shows that the jar was triggered succesfully.
Clearing Fixed resolution.
setting target milestone to M10 Jimmy please verify if this is still an valid bug
Build 6/16/99 SeaMonkey 1. Go to http://puma/xpinstall/test/trigger.html (Samir's trigger--mine doesn't work) and trigger http://grok/u/dougt/xpinstall/an8bitscript_currentuser_mod.jar I still get a crash on Windows NT. However, a "charset" folder is created as expected and files are added up to "ch170-?".

Build 7/30/99 This still crashes for me with an8bitscript_currentuser_mod.jar. The folder is created and some files are added. This time it got as far as ch204-Þ. Linux and Macintosh behave fine. The problem is only with WindowsNT and Win98. Win95 has not been tested yet.

Clearing WorksForMe resolution due to reopen.
okay. I can not reproduce this again. Lets do the basic problem thing and break this bug into pieces. First, lets remove all the 8 bit characters from this jar file. Let make a simple case that does an add of 1000 files into current user. Second, lets make a test case that only adds 8bit files. Third, lets get together so that you can show me the crash. I maybe able to figure out more than the talkback report. Until then, I will leave as assigned.
After talking to cathleen, she comfirms that the problem really is the 8bit characters. This 8 bit problem, only occurs on optimized builds. I am closing *this* bug as WORKS_FOR_ME and advise opening a new bug regarding the 8bit characters.
Marking this verified. Will investigate 8-bit characters further and enter new bug if necessary.
