How to do a nightly build update ?

Hi,

I have installed Portable Firefox and it updates itself correctly, with nightly builds every day.

Now I have installed Portable Thunderbird and it is not updating.

How I could to force Portable Thunderbird to update itself using a nightly build ?

Thanks

Leo

Unsupported

The nightly build updater is not a standard Mozilla update process and hasn't been analyzed for portability. Thus, it isn't supported with the portable versions right now.

That said... I honestly don't know. It could simply be that it's just not portable. Did you try it with the launcher that's a part of the current Thunderbird Portable pre-release 1.5.0.7 (check the beta forum).

Sometimes, the impossible can become possible, if you're awesome!

I forget to say: I am using

I forget to say:

I am using Portable Firefox 2.0, with nightly builds working perfectly. Portable Firefox 2.0 download each day a nightly build and update itself.

And now I am trying to use Portable Thunderbird 2.0. With Portable Thunderbird 2.0, the "Check for Updates" option dont download any nightly build.

My question is: Are someway to configure Portable Thunderbird 2.0 to download nightly ?

Or can I download a full nightly and update the Portable Thunderbird folder ?

Do you have the Update

Do you have the Update Channel Selector because you need to set Thunderbird to get on the "nightly" update channel in order to get the nightly updates.

Now I have it

Now I have it installed.

This extension "Update Channel Selector" works perfectly.

Now I have updated the Portable Thunderbird to build:

Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:1.8.1) Gecko/20060923 Thunderbird/2.0b1pre ID:2006092304

Thanks !

I know

But the launcher within Thunderbird Portable 1.5.0.7 Pre-Release is more recent (and more bug-free) than the older one released with Thunderbird Portable 2.0 test.
