AccessibleMarshal.dll failed to register

Postby markusnagel » Thu Jan 11, 2007 8:30 am

Hello everybody,
first of all I want to thank you for this great piece of software. It helps me a lot managing my little network and distributing the newest versions of Firefox using gpos.
But on one machine, I cannot update Frontmotion Firefox CE from Version 2 to Version 2.0.0.1.
Wether I try to update or uninstall the old version and then install the new version, the installation gives me a popup showing the following message:
Module C:\Programme\Mozilla Firefox\AccessibleMarshal.dll failed to register. HRESULT -2147024770. Contact your support personnel

I get the choice between cancel, retry or ignore.
When I click on ignore it finishes the installation but then I cannot start Firefox.
Machine's OS: Win2k Pro, SP4 with latest security updates
Machine's hardware:
AMD Duron 800 Mhz
256 MB RAM
15819 MB free diskspace

On other Win2k machines with different hardware, the problem doesn't occur and the upgrade works perfectly, even by gpo.

Any ideas?

Thanks in advance

Markus

same problem

Postby moobyfr » Mon Jan 15, 2007 6:12 am

I have the same problem,
Some of these computers have mozilla-thunderbird 1.0 or 1.5 installed and they ship the same dll, but probably not the same version necessary.
And uninstalling thunderbird isn't sufficiant (I think they don't unregister the dll)
so I ignore the error and I can install firefox.
But using GPO I'm unable to force it.

1.0.x thunderbird affected only

Looking further, only 1.0.x release are affected, I have only one user with 1.5.x which is affected by this bug and it was an upgrade from 1.0.6

Hello moobyfr,
well, sorry, but it is not the same problem. You can ignore the message and your firefox seems to run. When I ignore the message and try to start firefox, a popup is shown which tells me, that
Die Dynamic Link Library MSVCR71.dll wurde nicht im angegebenen Pfad C:\Programme\Mozilla Firefox;.;C:\WINNT\system32;C:\WINNT\system;C:\WINNT;C:\Programme\Mozilla Firefox;C:\WINNT\system32;C:\WINNT;C:\WINNT\System32\Wbem gefunden.

There is no Thunderbird on any of the concerning systems.
Any help would be great

Greetings Markus

Thanx a lot, Dracon! Now the package can be installed by hand without any errors.
Still have to try it by gpo, but I guess it'll work there, too.
Thanks again for your help.
Greetings Markus

with a little more testing, the failure of the registration of the dll is tue to the missing MSVCR71.DLL and MSVCP71.DLL
When these DLL are shipped (by firfox or present in the system before), the AccessibleMarshal.dll is registred without problem.

when you examine the install_wizard1.log of firefox (folder 'uninstall', firefox version 1.5x), the setup check the existence of the 2 dll system : msvcrt.dll and msvcirt.dll

Code: Select all

    Mozilla XPCOM (version 1.5.0.7)
     -------------

     ** initInstall: 0
     ** fProgram: C:\Program Files\Mozilla Firefox\
     ** Installing: C:\Program Files\Mozilla Firefox\component.reg
     ** addDirectory() of Program returned: 0
     ** fileExists() returned: 1
     ** File found: C:\WINDOWS\system32\msvcrt.dll
     ** fileExists() returned: 1
     ** File found: C:\WINDOWS\system32\msvcirt.dll


if they aren't present in system32, firefox install them.

Just a note that this problem is part of the ms*.dll problem. Previously, only the en-US and de were fixed. Now all packages are fixed.
