 I am sorry I missed you on IRC.  I no longer have the installed copy of TB
 on Windows that we used when testing the fix for this ticket, but I put a
 copy of the updater.exe from my builder tree plus its checksum here:
 I am 99% sure that is what we used to test.

 If you get error 19 (CERT_VERIFY_ERROR) it is may be that the wrong
 signing certificate was embedded in updater.exe.  I have run into that
 before; alpha, beta, and release builds use release_primary.der and
 release_secondary.der but nightly builds use nightly_aurora_level3*.der.

 Or you do are using an unsigned MAR.  Or something else that we do not
 understand is happening.
