General discussion about K-Meleon.
[quote=siria] Leicht peinlich... Actually I haven't updated yet from 1.6beta2.5 to 2.6 for lack of time and not considering it so urgent, but since you're having such massive problems, thought I'd just unzip 26 and look what happens. If I just start it without copying over anything, only set the compatibility to XP. And oops... out of box it doesn't start on my machine either! But funnily it doesn't complain about xpcom (your error message), but complains about imglib2! Luckily after copying over the working version from 2.5 it the 2.6 now starts normal. Haven't tried anything further yet. imglib2.dll in components folder, working version 184.108.40.206pre dated 24-june-2011, after replacement probably compreg.dat and xpti.dat should be deleted again before browser start. Somewhere in the forum I've read that it was updated due to some exploitable bug with images, but can't help it if the new version doesn't like win98 anymore :-( (just secretly hoping those bugs may not work on win98 either :P) Anyway, your error is about xpcom so that must have another reason. If kernelex is surely set to XP, that leaves the vcredist files as No1 suspects. This package is available in various versions, did you install the VS2005 linked from the download page? (goes to www.microsoft.com/en-us/download/details.aspx?id=5638 ) For K-Meleon the 3 important files are said to be msvcr80.dll, msvcp80.dll, perhaps msvcm80.dll. In the past it was enough to copy them into the k-meleon root folder, not sure if it still works, but worth a try. If yet another file is missing, dependency walker hopefully reveals it (mfc80?) If memory serves KM1.6 corresponds to FF3.5, and 1.7 to 3.6, but others can confirm better. But you mentioned you can start one of the other user versions. What happens there when you open Edit >Configuration >Browser Configuration? Does it not open about:config?[/quote]
