From Bugzilla Helper: User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.0; en-US; rv:0.9.1+) Gecko/20010606 BuildID: 2001060620 Mozilla will not install when ActiveState Komodo is open Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. Run Komodo 2. Run Mozilla Installer Actual Results: Installer complains about an instance of Mozilla being open Expected Results: Installer should ignore Komodo
does having Komodo open lock any mozilla files? If so, the installer cannot replace the files.
It runs files out of its own directory which includes a full distro of Mozilla. I'm sure it has files locked.. but these are files that will not get overwritten unless somebody explicitly sets the install directory to the one under Komodo's. Perhaps Mozilla instance checking should be handled differently.
The problem is that the installer is looking for a window with a classname of: MozillaWindowClass to see if mozilla is running. It looks like ActiveState Komodo uses the same window class name. I'm not sure where the fix should be: 1) change the installer to check something else for a running mozilla 2) change the window class name used by ActiveState Komodo I'm leaning towards 2), but I have a biased opinion.

This was fixed by the patch that made it so Netscape could be installed while Mozilla (or other Gecko client like AOL) was running.
