I have a visual basic program with an install package already saved. I made a change to the exe and recompiled the program. I rebuilt the install package but the install package still had the old exe. I rebuilt the install package several times and it still used the old exe. How do I get it to use the new exe? Is this because I am using the trial version of Install Shield? The new exe overwrote the old exe. Thank you for any help in advance.

What happens if you delete (or move) the built files and then do a rebuild ?

Thanks for the help. The problem was that during the uninstall the exe was not removed and when I reinstalled my program the exe was not overwritten. My question is how do I get the uninstaller to remove all the files (the exe and my chm help file were left behind) or how do I get the installer to overwrite an existing exe? Thanks for any help in advance.
