View Full Version : Replacing files

Is there a way to mark files in the install package so that windows installer will not try to repair them? What we do here is only send out an installer package for a new install. Any updates are sent out to the clients via FTP and an application running locally just does a find and replace. Since we have upgraded to InstallShield Express 5 from 3.5, we now have a problem that after we have sent out updates, the installer “repairs” the installation and puts all of the files back to what shipped on the CD.

I have seen several posts that are similar to this question, but none that directly answers it. Any help would be greatly appricated.

Thanks,

Randy
