Upgrade from v1.5.0.12 to v2.0.0.6 screwup

Windows XP up to date on patches
Thunderbird NOT installed
Thunderbird portable version being used daily for email

Upgraded to Thunderbird version 2.0.06 and everything, except for the address book, got screwed up.

I followed the upgrade instructions below, as found on this site, but they seem to be wrong. This seems to be old, written for upgrades within version 1, before there was a version 2.

"To install Thunderbird Portable, just download the portable package at the top of the Thunderbird Portable page and then double-click it. Select the location you wish to install to and click OK. A PortableThunderbird directory will be created there and all the necessary files installed. That's all there is to it.. "

This is what Portable Thunderbird looks like when it starts up

This is the error log just after startup

I have a full working backup, that being part of the beauty of portable apps, but sooner or later need to migrate from v1 to v2.

Can I just copy selected files/folder from v1 to v2?

Mine worked without a problem.
Did you make sure you download didn't get corrupted?
Or the profile got corrupted?

no corruption

The Thunderbird error log clearly shows a host of problems - I don't see the need to guess. I just don't understand the error messages.
