Visual Studio .NET 2008 Deployment project runs but does not updateinstalled version

I have a visual studio 2008 solution(win forms)
I have a Deployment project with it to install the software
I upgrade the version number on the deployment project and build it
When I run this on the destination machines everything appears to work
fine (no errors).
However when the application is opened on the deployment machines it
has not upgraded.

We have to manually uninstall teh application first then run the
deployment project. In this case it works fine.

Deployment project settings
Detect newer installed versions: True
Version : This gets updated every time (and we we increment, visual
studio automatically changes the product code).
Upgrade Code : This stays the same

This always worked fine when we were using visual studio 2005.
