Update followed by "remove program"
I have a simple question. I have seen it asked many times but never really answered.
A user installs a Basic MSI installation (IS Dev v7). It installs 10 files. I deliver an update (using REINSTALLMODE=voums and a different package code). The user installs this. 3 files are successfully updated and 2 are added.
The user uninstalls using the windows control panel add/remove programs. Only the 5 files that were part of the update are removed.
Is there a way to deliver the update and have the uninstall delete all 12 files?
I was thinking something like REINSTALLMODE=vo but that didn't work.
Thanks for any suggestions.
simplest way is to build a major update
what kind of update do you deliver?
Thanks for your response. I just copy the project, remove the files that I don't need to update, add a feature for any new files, and mark it with REINSTALLMODE=voums REINSTALL=feature1 ADDLOCAL=newfeature1.
Look forward to hearing from you. Thanks.
but what did you do to make an upgrade of the existing installation?
did you change packetcode, productcode, version, updatecode?
I changed the package code. I also changed the version (from 5.0.00 to 5.1.00).
The others I left the same. Thanks.
