Description

8 years ago
User-Agent:       Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 6.1; WOW64; rv:2.0b6) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/4.0b6
Build Identifier: -

The debug builds won't run, because according to the (non-English) error message they have invalid parallel definitions (rough translation). Windbg gives an error code: 0n14001. I have tried several different debug builds.

Are the files corrupted or is there a special trick needed to run them?

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Download a debug build from the URL & unpack it
2. Attempt to run firefox.exe
Actual Results:  
An error message is displayed.

Expected Results:  
The program should run.

List of installed VC redists
I don't think debug builds are supposed to work on machines that do not have Microsoft Visual Studio installed (as you need the debug version of the VC runtime DLLs for that). I think this bug is invalid...?

Which VS is required? I have 2008 and 2010 express editions.

Also, if this is about missing debug dlls, distributing the dlls with the debug builds would fix this.
The VS license does not allow to distribute the debug runtime DLLs.
You need VS 2005 btw. Marking as invalid.
