Error in the Sunbird Launcher ?

I am looking in the SunbirdPortable.nsi and i think there is a problem in it.

At line 117, we have ReadEnvStr $APPDATAPATH "APPDATA"
And, after that, on line 198, there is something like this
IfFileExists "$APPDATA\Mozilla\Sunbird\*.*" CheckIfRunning

Assuming the syntax of ReadEnvStr
the Environment variable will be stored into $APPDATAPATH variable

So the line 198 (and some others near line 383) would be
IfFileExists "$APPDATAPATH\Mozilla\Sunbird\*.*" CheckIfRunning

No ?? Is this correct for you ??

Correct me if i'm wrong.

Looks

like a bug to me.

EDIT: Although I think you can call $APPDATA straight off and it will give you the correct dir, so maybe the readenvstr line is unnecessary.

Right

Your right, there is a constant for $APPDATA, that's why the NSIS compiler
don't stop on errors.

It's not a important bug, just the ReadEnvStr line is obsolete

Another interrogation

I think it was not necessary to create a new topic for this, so i post here.

Into the CheckIfRunning label, it checks for multiple instances.

On line 207, a test with IfFileExists on file parent.lock is done
but , i think, not correctly implemented.

IfFileExists "$PROFILEDIRECTORY\parent.lock" "" WarnAnotherInstance
StrCpy $SECONDARYLAUNCH "true"
Goto RunProgram

If the file really exists, the jump would go to WarnAnotherInstance and not go to
on the bottom line.

For tests, i edit installer and delete the "" between file path and "WarnAnotherInstance"
and it works as it should be now.
