Installer / Uninstaller

P: n/a
Hi all,

I'm creating an installer package for my vb.net application and was
wondering if anyone could give me some insight into the check for previous
versions setting.

I seem to get problems when trying to install an updated version of my
application over the top of a pre-existing one; even though [remove previous
versions] = true.

Anyone else have these problems or have I missed something fundamental
(again!) ?

Thanks,

JC

Change Setup Version property. Than it will urge you to change some codes.
Click Yes.

In addition to the other replies: Make sure "SETUP.EXE" is started
instead of starting the MSI file directly. By starting the MSI file
directly, no check will be performed.
