please correct me if i am wrong:
one solution for this problem is to delete the lightning addon in the 
distribution folder after upgrading TB, like Marco suggested:

<install cmd='%COMSPEC% /c if exist "%ProgramFiles32%\Mozilla Thunderbird\distribution\extensions\{e2fda1a4-762b-4020-b5ad-a41df1933103}" rd /q /s "%ProgramFiles32%\Mozilla Thunderbird\distribution\extensions\{e2fda1a4-762b-4020-b5ad-a41df1933103}"' />

You then don´t have to provide Lightning in the extensions folder 
It is just an option, right? The user can upgrade to a newer version of 
Lightning (if available) by himself.
