OS: Win XP RC1 Ja

On Windows XP, running browser with profilemanager option on command prompt
doesn't bring up profilemanager window.

Steps to reproduce:
1. Open commmand prompt window.
2. Go to the folder where the executable is located.
3. Run command, like "netscp6.exe -profilemanager", it doesn't bring up  Profile
Manager window.

I don't see this problem on W2K and win98.

It only happens when there is only one existing profile.

It should still bring up the Profile Manager- do you have turbo/quick launch on? 

Comment 3

I see this problem with Quick Launch turned off, which is the default option.
With Quick Launch turned on, profile manager can be launched even with only one
existing profile.

I'm having the same problem with 95 OSR2. I only have one profile (which is why
I want to bring up Profile Manager, to create/import more).

I cannot reproduce this on XP 2600
I had a clean system - no Netscape 4.x profiles, no 6.x profiles
Installed build for 9/7
Netscape launched with default profile as expected
brought up DOS window
ran netscp6 -profilemanager from install directory

launched with Profile Manager

I can reproduce if I have pref set for turbo and turbo is running

Grace. can you reproduce when there is only one profile with quick launch is 
turned off?
My case is: I have one 4.x profile first, then run 6.x converts the 4.x profile 
to 6.x profile, after that I'm unable to bring up profile manager. I have to 
turn on quick launch or have another 4.x profile.

I cannot reproduce unless I have turbo(QuickLaunch) turned on
I don't think it makes a difference if the profile is migrated or not- as long 
as only one profile exists- 

adding Conrad to cc list as he may have some insights to turbo behavior 
and its affect on profilemanager option

Now I can only reproduce this problem with quick launch enabled, same as Grace.
But I did see this problem with quick launch turned off, since when I reported
this bug, I ran 6.x with a profile migrated from 4.x, and quick launch is turned
off by default with a migrated profile. Something must have happened when I
played with quick launch feature.

Found the problem and the fix is in patch for bug 88844.

The problem as I found it and fixed it was this: After the initial launch with
Quicklaunch (which may have happened at Windows startup time), if you had only 1
profile, launching again with -profilemanager did not bring up the profile mgr
UI. It worked properly if you had > 1 profile at the time of the initial launch.
Depends on: 88844

-> 0.9.4 Not that it really matters because it will be fixed by bug 88844 but
keeping this one alive since it's valid and not a dup.
Target Milestone: --- → mozilla0.9.4

I can't verify this without a Japanese OS. Can someone with Win XP RC1 Ja please 
verify this for me?

Peter/Sol - If Turbo is in, we should nsbranch+ all related bugs required to
meet the requirements for this round.

If you're talking about the branch build, yes it's still happening. Bug 88844
has not gone into the branch. Since the fix is in 88844, marking invalid.
