Ok. Latest nightly as of writing this seems to be
(looking at http://bitbucket.org/tortoisehg/thg-winbuild/downloads/
The test case I had in mind is about the following scenario:
A user is logged-in as normal user 'x' (not a member of the
administrators group), having the thgtaskbar.exe running.
Then that user x decides to install a new version of TortoiseHg.
He starts the installer by holding down the shift key on the
keyboard and clicking the right mouse button while pointing
at the installer exe, then chooses "Run as..." from the context
menu that is presented ("Run as..." appears only when
In the dialog appearing, he chooses the administrator account
to run the exe, and enters the password for that login.
This is in fact how I mostly install software myself, since
I don't want to be logged in as an admin on a Windows XP
system while surfing The Evil Net. But I don't want to log
out just to install a software component.
The question I had is: The patch seems to be going fishing
for the thgtaskbar's window and closes it.
Does that work in this use case?
Maybe I'll try testing that during the day...
BTW, it would really be helpful if we knew in advance what
a nightly contains. That would increase my motivation to
test them significantly.
Maybe you could note on a wiki page what exact revisions of
the repositories you used when building the installer?
As it currently is, nightlies are a bit of a black box.
