I have the first builds coming out:
ftp://ftp.mozilla.org/pub/mozilla.org/firefox/nightly/latest-mozilla-central/firefox-3.7a5pre.en-US.win64-x86_64.zip

I am cleaning up and wrapping up my automation patches and I will do a
wider announcement and status update on Monday (debug builds and others).

Please give big thanks to Makoto for having knocked out several bugs
specially the one that was crashing the browser.

Check out the screen shot:

Armen

Just found this thread, and after un-zipping, I see the same error.

Will there eventually be installer builds as well ?

Eventually but the installer will need to be reworked to write to the
correct registry keys and likely need to perform some additional clean
up as well.

Can you please file a bug? Which operating systems?

I am currently producing them:
ftp://ftp.mozilla.org/pub/mozilla.org/firefox/nightly/latest-mozilla-central/firefox-3.7a5pre.en-US.win64-x86_64.installer.exe
but as Rob mentions it might not work properly.

Rob do you have a bug tracking that work?

OS here is Win7 x64, HP Pavilion, AMD Mobo Phenom II Quad CPU,
onboard HD3200 GPU, and 8gig RAM.

I suspect that this is a packaging issue -- if we build with VC10,
then we have to redist the VC10 runtime, which has a different name.

This is great stuff, Armen! thanks for getting it stood up.

Exactly.
If you don't have MSVC2010 (Express) installed you need to manually
install the 2010 redistributables. Link, I guess:
http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details.aspx?displaylang=en&FamilyID=bd512d9e-43c8-4655-81bf-9350143d5867

The reason the 32bit builds don't require the 2008 redistributables is
that they don't use the real MS CRT but a custom build CRT
(mozcrt19.dll) that has jemalloc patched in.
Once jemalloc gets ported to WIN64 the msvcr100 dependency should go away.


So now for the occasional screenshot (Win XP x64, i.e. Server 2003 x64)
http://tn123.ath.cx/share/images/60766a95053ed19421f24577e33d20d0-fx64.png

Even the binary component I built against moz1.9.2 x64 in one of my
extensions works with the build:
http://tn123.ath.cx/mintrayr/beta/
(Remember: extensions.checkCompatibility.3.7a;false)

Nice work
Cheers

Which readme are you referring to?

I have made a post:
http://armenzg.blogspot.com/2010/05/pre-release-firefox-windows-64-bit.html

You need to install the Microsoft Visuall C++ redistributable to be able
to run the build.

I hope this helps,
Armen

I have filed this:
Bug 569268 - Missing MSVCR100.dll for Windows 64-bit builds
https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=569268

I hope it is accurate. I need someone to verify though.

Cheers,
Armen

I've hidden the unit tests on the Firefox tree, they were all burning.

Thanks. I had thought that the default state is to be hidden.

Sorry for any inconveniences.
Armen
