    Hallo,
    I answered "yes" to the automatically generated pop-up question
    whether I wanted to update to the newest version of SM 2.0.x,
    installed the update automatically (by SeaMonkey's installation
    automatic procedures) and cannot use SeaMonkey any more since this
    update has finished. What went wrong? I need SeaMonkey urgently, since
    my e-mail folders are stored under SeaMonkey and I have access only to
    a limited number of recent mails via a webmail tool.

    Dear Lee,

    Yes, I mean that almost nothing happens. I am afraid of loosing all my
    previous e-mails if I download the complete installer. Therefore, I
    have not applied this option. On my PC under Windows XP Professional,
    the same procedure went fine: The automatic update procedure was
    carried out and I can use the browser and the e-mail client. But under
    Win 7 Professional, it did not work and SeaMonkey does even not start
    after the update.

    On 13th of January I had posted the following description of my
    problem under this usenet group:
    Dear users of SeaMonkey,

    I was using Seamonkey 1.8 under Windows 7 Professional until yesterday
    on my Notebook. Yesterday evening an automatic update notice popped up
    and asked me whether I wanted to install the next version of
    SeaMonkey. I answered yes, had to authorise the administration tool
    for the user accounts of my notebook to accept certain modifications
    which were supposed to be carried out during the installation. No
    error message appeared. But since this update procedure has executed
    all its files, SeaMonkey does not start any more. When I click
    directly on the link on the desktop or when I click directly on C:
    \Program Files (x86)\SeaMonkey\seamonkey.exe, a pop-up window appears
    asking whether I would like to authorise the programme of an unknown
    publisher to carry out modifications on the computer. The programme to
    carry out these modifications is seamonkey.exe. It doesn't matter if I
    answer yes or no, since afterwards the pop-up window simply disappears
    and nothing else happens.

    Therefore, I have used a new feature which is available under the
    Windows 7.0, namely the "Test programme compatibility". The result of
    the test is that seamonkey.exe is - according to Windows 7.0
    Professional - an incompatible application. After having executed the
    test, I have the option to generate a report which is sent to
    Microsoft (who has not answered, since they never do) or to run
    through additional options. But none of these additional options is of
    help.

    Another idea was to stop my ESET antivirus before I start SeaMonkey.
    But the result was exactly the same as already described above.

    A last intention was to re-install the previous version of SeaMonkey,
    but the respective sub-programme under "properties of Seamonkey"
    searches for previous versions and ends with the message that there
    are no previous versions available on my notebook...

    The worst thing is that I have lost access to my e-mail account which
    is integrated in SeaMonkey. The browser is not that important, I can
    just use any other browser, but I do not want loose access to all my
    e-
    mails...

    Thank you very much for your help!

    Cheers,
    Claus

    Dear Lee,

    Thank you for your feedback. Yes, my previous SM version was 1.1.18.
    The automatic update tried to install 2.0.2 under Win7 and failed.
    Since I had no other choice, I downloaded the complete installer of
    2.0.2, tried to install the programme, but it was incompatible with
    Win7 and did behave as described above. Therefore, I used a copy of an
    older complete installer, namely of the version 2.0 and installed this
    version under Win7. This intent was successful. SM 2.0 runs under
    Win7, but SM 2.0.2 did not run under Win7.

    Approx. 1 week after having installed SM 2.0, the automatic installer
    announced that a newer version of SM was about to be installed on my
    notebook. I tried to stop this activity, but the programme installed
    the update and it works more or less. Each time when I start SM, a pop-
    up windows appears and I have to answer the question whether I want to
    accept modifications of my computer by an unknown programme calles
    seamonkey.exe. I have to answer "yes" and afterwards the programme
    starts. The start is very slow, but once started, it works as well as
    the last version without problems (1.1.18) did work.

    Thank you,

    cheers,
    Claus
