View Full Version : Upgrade always adds to Add/Remove Programs

It seems no matter what I try each time I produce a new release there is a new line added to the Add/Remove Programs in control panel. From the documentation I believe I am supposed to

1) change the version of the released software,
2) change the product code in general features,
3) create an upgrade path where the upgrade code matches the upgrade code in the general features.

What am I missing?

By the way I have tried making the upgrade code in upgrade path match product code in the general features (documentation not real clear) but with the same results.

Few questions to nail the problem. I will be assuming that "Version1" is your original release, and "Version2" is the later release (That has the Upgrade Path)

1. Do both Version1 and Version2 have the same Upgrade Codes?
2. What is the Version Number of Version1 (General Information View)?
3. What is the Version Number of Version2 (General Information View)?
4. In the Upgrade Path (in Version2), what have you specified as the Minimum Version and Maximum Version?
5. Have you specified any "Language Identifiers"?
6. What is "Language Search Criterion" set to?
7. What are "Include Min Version" and "Include Max Version" set to?
