Installation:

  • mkdir "%PROGRAMFILES%\Mozilla Thunderbird\extensions\{847b3a00-7ab1-11d4-8f02-006008948af5}"
  • "%WPKGROOT%\tools\unzip" -o "%PACKAGES%\enigmail\enigmail-0.94.1-tb15-win32.xpi" -d "%PROGRAMFILES%\Mozilla Thunderbird\extensions\{847b3a00-7ab1-11d4-8f02-006008948af5}"
  • I'm hoping this is as good as installing globally?
HOW DO WE UNINSTALL IT? (if it can't be done more elegantly, we can delete files then remove 2 lines from overlays.rdf with Perl)
