1.5a's Loader.exe

Will placing 1.5a's Loader.exe in Startup cause any problems for 1.1.2 as long as 1.1.2's Loader.exe is [not] loaded in startup?

Thank you.

BTW, 1.5a is proving so stable that you may want to consider skipping 1.5 beta and go foward with a 1.5 Final realease. smiling smiley

AFAIK You are right.

The loader will make that an instance of the K-Meleon to which it belongs is pre-loaded. So it prevents start of another k-meleon before it is shut down.

AFAIK that is all. Since I use more than one K-Meleon on a regular basis I will not use the loader smiling smiley

I echoe caktus' view that 1.5a1 is indeed very stable.
Using Alain's & Douglas' information has allowed me to create a compressed pocket version of 1.5a1 that I've been using since the alpha release and I've experienced no issues of any kind.
Many thanks to the developers for their fine work.

Thanks Guy's for your input. I went ahead and tried it. I closed 1.1.2's Loader and removed it from Startup. The I loaded 1.5a's Loader. But when I would click on an Internet link/shortcut I get this page >

When I attempt to assign 1.5a as default
browser I get a 1.1 Setup Assistent i.e.
http://aycu33.webshots.com/image/29472/2006242463658350629_rs.jpg However, with 1.5a assigned as default browser by this method, clicking on the Loader icon opens a 1.5a window. But still when I click on an Internet link/shortcut I get this page >
http://aycu37.webshots.com/image/29076/2001817590861517214_rs.jpg
When I right click on 1.5a's Loader icon and slect About it indicates
So I guess 1.1.2 [would] have to first be
uninstalled. I wish there was A way to test
1.5a's default status with out actually
uninstalling 1.1.2. If 1.5a continues to
prove stable perhaps I [will] uninstall
1.1.2.

go to Adavanced Preferences > Browsing Options > Set as default Browser & click
or go to 1.5 folder and start setdefault.exe.

p. s. a setdefault.exe chooses by default the k-meleon in its own directory.
You can copy a setdefault from another location/install if You ever get a test version that has none smiling smiley
