Created attachment 606874 [details] mozconfig I normally build with official branding enabled. Since bug 713132 landed, packaging as failed with Error: package error or possible missing or unnecessary file: bin/uninstall/helper.exe (package-manifest, 31). Error: package error or possible missing or unnecessary file: bin/maintenanceservice_installer.exe (package-manifest, 415). Error: found error(s) while packaging, see above for details. make: *** [stage-package] Error 9 This bug prevents the crash automation from performing tests on Nightly builds on Windows.
I've added a patch to my local build environments to back the patch out and and am no longer blocked by this, but it will affect any attempt to perform official builds as is.
Given bug 650322, could you explain why --disable-installer would be needed in your case(s)?
It isn't absolutely needed but I don't use the installer and disabled it long ago to save time. If we are going to remove the option, I can go ahead and build it unless there is another way to disable it.

All things being equal, we prefer to have fewer configure options. All the prereqs for building the installer ship with MozillaBuild now, which is the only supported build environment on Windows, so it's not an onerous requirement.
