We have have a new FilesInUse dialog for PIP, which follows the spec at:


I think we should have a unique ping if they press cancel on the FilesInUse dialog?  It would be an interesting datapoint to know how many people are canceling after seeing this dialog. 

Rajani thoughts:

"Yes, it is interesting to collect info, may be
the same 'ic' ping with a diff value.
But we need to be careful  not to post everytime
user cancels it.   And also, we need to send
the complete ping if user finally installs it. "

EVALUATION We should also send Installstats pings to track the default browser, whether it be Firefox, IE or other.

EVALUATION Yes. Lets send it with ic ping with a different number that we define. -Ken William Harnois wrote: > Ken, do we want this data? > > Also, do we want the data where we ping whether the install was static or not? > > -Bill The above email was exchanged between Ken and Bill. We should ping when they cancel the FilesInUse dialog and whether they installed statically or not. This is needed for 6u11.

EVALUATION This was never a requirement for 6u10, but it would be nice to have this information. I'm retargeting for 6u12.

EVALUATION Renaming the synopsis. We should also add pings that indicate static or consumer installs.
