View Full Version : multiple installations of same product

I want to run the same installer multiple times on one machine. Thus allowing the user to have multiple copies of the same product.

But, each time I run the installer, even if I change my install location, my desktop shortcuts, program groups, and add/remove get overwritten.

I've tried dynamically changing the product name, then using $P(DisplayName) for my shortcut names. But, the uninstaller in add/remove still gets overwritten. And, my shortcuts end up nameless.

Is there a good way to get around this?
