Latest Profile Creator

1. Launch Apprunner on clean system (delete Users50\, delete
windows\mozregistry.dat prior to running apprunner.exe)
2. Proceed to 2nd screen of profile creator (screen specifies New Profile Name &
Profile Directory)
3. Enter text that is not in Directory format in the profile directory text
field. (ex: "my name is ..." do not include c:\<path>).
4. Select Next button

Results:

The Profile Creator proceeds to the next screen.

Expected:

Profile Creator should have prompted user with a dialog requesting that they
re-enter the Directory path and provide and example C:\<profile_directory>\.
Status: NEW → ASSIGNED
Target Milestone: M8
Yes. We need some verification mechanism in place. In fact, we should put
a default in that field depending on the platform.
Severity: major → normal
Target Milestone: M8 → M9
Will be implememnted along with the new UI changes that German is going to
provide. Moving TFV to M9.
Target Milestone: M9 → M10
XP Verification calls implementation of additional APIs in the FileSpec and also
an xpidl API to interact with (new) UI to loop until a valid directory name is
provided. Setting TFV to M10.
P3s aren't going to make it in M10.  Bulk moving to M11.

These bugs are not critical for beta 1, moving out.
Target Milestone: M11 → M15
No longer blocks: 12696

Resolution: --- → INVALID
With the new UI, a particular directory to store profile information is selected
by the user using the 'Browse' button interface, which calls for no verfication
of the directory name. Marking this bug invalid.
Status: RESOLVED → VERIFIED
