I noticed when doing an update from a build yesterday to today's build that the service was not getting updated. > Could not overwrite old service binary file. This should never happen, but if it does the next upgrade > will fix it, the service is not a critical component that needs to be installed for upgrades to > work. (123) > ERROR: Could not move old service file out of the way from: ""C:\Program Files (x86)\Mozilla > Maintenance Service\maintenanceservice.exe"" to ""C:\Program Files (x86)\Mozilla Maintenance > Service\maintenanceservice.eold". Service will not be upgraded. (123) What's happening is that bug 748764 added quotes in the path of the install binary. We get that path on the next update, but Windows returns it with quotes. The MoveFile call fails because of an invalid path error because it has quotes around it.
This would only effect installs that were done after bug 748764 landed. Which was for m-c: 2012-05-02 12:42:07 PDT And for beta and aurora on: 2012-05-06 20:13:36 PDT
The fix will need to: 1) make the postupdate remove the quotes on the service path. 2) Fix the serviceinstall.cpp code
This is a problem for background updates. I filed bug 757716 to disable Nightly updates on Windows, and will now back out bug 307181. :(
> The fix will need to: > 1) make the postupdate remove the quotes on the service path. > 2) Fix the serviceinstall.cpp code Actually we can skip #1 because we will execute the new maintenanceservice.exe when updating the service.
Requesting tracking since this needs to go out with the fix in bug 748764 before release.
By the way I made a test program and you can call PathUnquoteSpacesW on a path that is not quoted and it will have no effect.

Comment on attachment 626380 [details] [diff] [review] Patch v1. [Triage Comment] It's critical that we keep our update service and FF version in lock step. Approved for Aurora 14 and Beta 13.
Simona can you confirm if we check the maintenanceservice-install.log for errors in litmus tests? Bug 748764 introduced this regression on beta on 2012-05-06. I'm not sure how often we run the litmus tests, but could you please add a test for that if not already present?
Simona, can you please verify this bug is now fixed. Since this is critical it needs verification in Firefox 13, 14, and 15. Thanks.

Added a test case in the Beta Smoketests that will be ran now regularly. Also added all the existing test cases on the Aurora branch included in the Basic Functional tests and Full Functional tests.
Awesome, thanks so much Simona!
On the Nightly branch the service still does not get updated in the Mozilla Maintenance service install folder. If I check in the Firefox install folder then the service looks updated. The maintenanceservice-install log does not updated either. I reproduced this on Windows 7 with the disabled UAC and on Windows XP. On Aurora both the service and the maintenanceservice-install log get properly updated.
Simona what you are seeing is: bug 758998 - Background updates breaks upgrading the service on XP It says XP in the title but it also happens for any build where the service is not used. You can test this bug in particular by setting app.update.stage.enabled to false first. Please also test bug 758998 though with the steps you were testing this bug with.
Verified that when updating from Firefox 13 beta 5 to Firefox 13 beta 6 the service is updated to a newest one. Verified on Windows 7, Windows XP and on Windows Vista x64: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 6.1; rv:13.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/13.0 Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 5.1; rv:13.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/13.0 Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 6.0; WOW64; rv:13.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/13.0 Verified also on Windows 7 and on Win XP that when updating the second newest Aurora and Nightly builds the service get updated. On the Nightly branch verified that the service gets updated to the latest one by changing the setting app.update.stage.enabled to false due to bug 758998. Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 5.1; rv:14.0) Gecko/20120529 Firefox/14.0a2 Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 6.1; rv:14.0) Gecko/20120530 Firefox/14.0a2 Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 5.1; rv:15.0) Gecko/15.0 Firefox/15.0a1 Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 6.1; rv:15.0) Gecko/15.0 Firefox/15.0a1 Thanks Brian for the guidance.
Based on the last comment I think this can be marked verified for Firefox 14 and 15.
