Steps to reproduce: 1. Install Mozilla in turbo mode 2. Perform various tests (multiple profiles etc) 3. Verify key set, path correct, profiles switch, UI seen 4. Run second install before rightclicking icon to exit actual results: Install proceeded, two systray icons displayed until mouseover removed old one, registry key path references new install, unable to rightclick to see icon menu or exit. expected results: Installer would give me warning that Mozilla was running. build 2001091405- mozilla
this does not happen with N6 Installer

All the uninstaller does is call the main app (in this case mozilla.exe) with a -kill. The -kill feature has probably been affected by all the recent turbo change landings. I've been seeing funny things happen with the turbo feature and how it exits. Adding Bill Law to the CC: list and reassigning to Syd.

nominating nsbranch just to make sure this is looked at. We *know* installing over a running build causes us grief (6.1 top crash) so we have to be vigilant.
oops, I meant to say that the uninstaller and the installer both just call the apps with -kill in order to deal with exiting out of turbo mode.
I wonder if this bug is related at all to bug 99677?
this is worksforme on win 98 (windows "me" actually, but same family). can I get confirmation this is only Windows NT (perhaps 2000 too)?
bug 99677 is specific to the advanced pref panel being broken and accidentally setting turbo off. So I don't think this is related (I didn't see mention of the pref panel being used). I suspect bug 88844. That code (as currently in the branch; dp has a patch attached to the bug) screws up xpcom initialization (and random other things?) whenever you launch mozilla without the -turbo option, but with the registry entry set that says "run in turbo mode." That situation would seem to apply here, right? The symptoms in that case seem random. In debug builds, it asserts/crashes. In optimized builds it seems to be broken in random ways (lots of dups). I don't understand exactly what's happening in this dual-install case, but I'd suspect bug 88844. We need to get dp's fix for that in ASAP and see if these other flaky problems get fixed, as well.

I've seen this work for me too under NT4 with 09/17 build. I can test it again with today's build and on a Win2k system (as well as NT4).
tested with 2001091803 branch build- on WinNT, Windows 2000, and WindowsXP systray icon is removed when Installer starts (Mozilla and branch builds) this is working for me
marking this fixed then.
