I need to detect if file was overwritten or not. I have rule that states to update files by version first and by date second. I have special option for user to patch. That means that files are installed but event handlers to register files, creating default configuration, etc. are skipped. I want to be able to show user at the end of patch setup list of files that were really updated.
I can do it manually reading file version and date before and after install, but this is too complicated. So I was looking for some event or log that I can read, with information about files being updated.
