I did not get that error, but I have quite a few Microsoft Redistributables installed. My error is with Intel C++ Redistributables, which I didn't have installed.
I think this installer is not quite the best for first time users and looks a bit off for new people wanting to try Waterfox. Having a different installer from Firefox and one that needs extras to work is a bit too much for some, at least from my point of view.
If you're going to keep this installer, make sure you fix those errors and also add an option to select whether one needs to have:
1. Desktop icon -> I don't
2. Pin icon on taskbar -> I want.
I'd also like to add how much sloppy Smooth Scrolling actually is. I hate it on Firefox. It's choppy, sloppy, whatever. returning to the old setting is much better, the browsing feels more fluid.
PS: Bigger problem. Every time I run Waterfox it keep asking me whether I'd like to set it up as default. That's a big problem.
Also, another issue: whenever I right click on Waterfox on taskbar (it's pinned) it doesn't show me any options, like "Private Browsing".
Also, it doesn't show up in Default Programs, so I can't ever set it up as default.
Alex, don't rush it. Take your time man. We support you. Fix these kinks with the installer.
This MSI is too big. Double the size of Firefox 13.
