Hi
I used msi to deploy application. I'd like to know if there is an easy way to upgrade the application with a new msi without unstalling but just upgrading it

If you can "upgrade" by
use the same Setup project, but update the Version of the setup
project,
set the RemovePreviousVersions to True

This will actually uninstall the old version and then install your newer
version, but it does do it automatically so the user doesn't have to do it
themselves.
