I hope someone here can help me... i been reminded of my membership here by someone answering to a thread i posted a year ago :)
The situation: I had (and still have) Netscape 7.1 on my machine (XP pro SP2), beside the usual IE 6. Now since a while (few months) i have also Firefox, version 1.0.
Installation of Firefox initially failed, because each time i clicked the setup file, it came up with NETSCAPE's installation routine. I posyted about that in a Firefox forum and got a link to a zip file, which included all files just to be copied to a folder. I did that, and since Firefox runs happily.
Howeever recently my Firefox came up with the messages that "there are updates", and it downloaded these. Upon trying to install, AGAIN it came up with "Netscape 7.1 Setup", which got stuck after a minute or so and exited. After reboot both Firefox and Netscape would no longer start, and i couldn't uninstall the updatre either. Both browsers complained about a "previous setup attempt had failed and needs to be restarted", which didn't work. I the reset key and F8 -> "last known good configuration" to get them working again.
Now, how can i get the update to install?
Also, in the same way, how can i install Thunderbird? It too comes with the "Netscape 7.1 setup" when i try to install it, with the same result (i.e. two screwed-up browsers).
By the way even after uninstalling Netscape completely (inclusive deleteing the remaining few folders and files!) it does the same - i have no clue where it gets the Netscape installer file from.
Any advise is appreciated.....
