Repair option in setup project

Hello everyone,

I have created a setup project using VS2008. When i deploy the project it creates some "xml files" along with the executables. And my application can change those files.

However when i try to deploy the same version of the project, then it will show me a "repair " and a "reomve" option which is correct.
Now what my requirement is that when I choose the "Repair" option what I want is that all those "xml" files should be replaced by the default "xml" files and not the changed ones.

Hope i was able to convey my query ....can someone suggest something?

The repair option pretty much just re-installs your program as if it was not there in the first place.
If you want the xml files to be reverted, you would need to include them in the installer project i think?
