Even though there's been a great push in migration quality over the years since Panther (and related systems) was first introduced, I today was treated (by an acquaintance) to a remarkable failure during a fairly late point of the apply stage during what should've been a routine upgrade from 10586 to 14393, a scenario that should be highly common by itself.

After the rollback of system state, I explicitly asked the user if they had indeed replaced aerolite.msstyles with a folder, and upon an affirmative answer noticed that this was a common thing to do to work around a flaw preventing UxStyle from working, and albeit this is clearly an unsupported scenario, it is notable how the SFLIST* whitelists[1] for data that can be ignored during gather apparently ignore the existence of a directory named after a whitelisted file, and only present this error during the application stage, when the folder is attempted to be placed in order to overwrite the file from the installation image.

While it is reasonable to do this to prevent data loss (said folder might very well, no matter how unlikely, contain user data), and because most (if not all?) files originating from the installation image have ACLs preventing anyone from creating directories in place of them accidentally, this type of no-matter-how-uncommon[2] issues do not help much with the group of users already wary of migration...

... then again, when the emoji font update in RS1 caused an application compatibility crash in code I actually wrote myself one day (which used the DWrite color run generation API incorrectly, mainly due to the lack of code samples), I pretty much realized first-hand how any small change can break something that was already slightly 'incorrect' to the point of not functioning...

1] These whitelists, indeed, include the following files:


2] A Google search regarding the issue in fact returned a post linked on a Turkish forum, so the issue in fact has occurred multiple times.
