This is exactly my problem as well. I installed SM 2.0 tonight on my WinXP Professional SP2 system that already has 1.1.18 working fine. After install I was prompted to launch SeaMonkey but nothing happens. It will not launch - at all - from the desktop icon or directly from the .exe file. No sign of it in Task Manager processes either. Fortunately my 1.1.18 is untouched, so I'll probably use that for the foreseeable future. I'd hate to have to switch to FF and TB since I've used the suite since Navigator 4 but this just isn't working for me.

Oh, the only parent.lock file I found anywhere was in my old SeaMonkey profile, none in the SM 2 directories at all. I deleted it as suggested, but no effect.

In the meantime, I've reverted back to SM 1.1.18.

I won't use IE except for downloading and installing Windows XP updates
because I've declined to install various security updates for it.  Thus,
I don't consider it a full-function, working browser in my configuration.

Go to Mozdev at <> for quick access to
extensions for Firefox, Thunderbird, SeaMonkey, and other
Mozilla-related applications.  You can access Mozdev much
more quickly than you can Mozilla Add-Ons.

I had 1.1.18 installed and running fine.  I downloaded 2.0 (just a
little while ago), installed it (no problems), then, like David it
asked if I wanted to run.  I said yes and nothing happened.  I also
double-clicked the SM icon in the SM folder: nothing.

I have only one profile and I did not uninstall 1.1.18.  I looked in
the SeaMonkey folder and the seamonkey.exe file had a date from
September.  I would have expected it to have an October date.

I have reloaded 1.1.18 but am disappointed with the 2.0 problem.  I'm
running XP-SP3.

Thanks for any help.
