VS2003 Setup conditions

P: 2
I'm having difficulties with a setup-project for a VS-2003 application. The setup is used for both a new installation as an update installation.

When the user performs an update, a specific files should never be overwritten (this file holds some user information). On the other hand, when the setup is a first time install, the file must be installed in the [TARGETDIR].

So, on the Launch Condition screen, I created a File Search, checking if the specific file does exist. This search has the property FLEETEXISTS. Like this:

.

On the File Installation Properties I'm checking the Condition [FLEETEXISTS] to determine if the file exists. Something like this.

I tried several syntaxes, like...

Expand|Select|Wrap|Line Numbers
  1. NOT FLEETEXISTS
  2. NOT [FLEETEXISTS]
  3. FLEETEXISTS=FALSE
  4. FLEETEXISTS=""
  5. FLEETEXISTS=0
...but non of these seem to work. The setup just always overwrites the file in the [TARGETDIR].

The deployment properties are:

.

How can I make things work?
