When creating a patch using the Patch Creation Wizard you can specify the version relationship. The default is the new version is >= previous version. After creating a patch the log contains files that were different but the version numbers were the same. It appeared that it did include these files in the patch but these files were not updated when the patch was run. Does the Windows Installer service not update these files on the client machine unless the version number is higher? The files are different but the version number was not changed when they were compiled. If the Patch Creation Wizard included them because of the version relationship rule why doesn't the installer service update them?
