I am attempting to package Thuderbird with the calendar extension into a deployable Msi for a Citrix environment. So far I have been successful creating the Thunderbird Msi. The issue is when I try to instal the calendar. When I deply the package; no calendar. I cannot seem to capture the calendar extension install. I have used Wise, WinInstall and Citirix Packager. I get the same results, a good Thunderbird msi, but the calendar feature was not capture. Any ideas? Thanks in advance.

If someone still cares.... [8|] Thunderbird 2.0.0.x and Lightning 0.9... as global extension

1. Install Mozilla Thunderbird
2. Under %ProgramFiles%\Mozilla Thunderbird\extensions\ create folder {e2fda1a4-762b-4020-b5ad-a41df1933103}
3. Extract contents of lightning.xpi file to the created folder (for example with 7-zip).
4. Some Thunderbird/Calendar cofiguration can be done via %ProgramFiles%\Mozilla Thunderbird\defaults\pref\ *.js files..
5. Take final snapshot..

Some points I know so far...
  1. *.js files are parsed in reverse order to filenames.. (so a.js wil be parsed one of the last)
  2. You can create your custom *.js file in '\pref\' folder and put some but not all settings from user profile prefs.js file but you should change 'user_pref' to 'pref' (I still have problem to change default send/receive charset globaly for all users to UTF-8 - mailnews.send_default_charset and mailnews.view_default_charset do not work. There also are problems to set settings of the first day of the week globaly in Lightning).
  3. At the first start in user profile will be created sql database file for calendarig so users do not share same calendar on same machine.
