Hi,

My requirement are something linke this,
I should be able to maintain different versions of the same product on a single machine. There is a feature in our product, like Version switching with which we can switch between the different versions of our product.

Earlier the installation setup was built in IS 5.5 where this was achieved easily as there is no concept of Maintenance Mode / Events.

As I am upgrading from 5.5 to 7.02 I am facing lot of problems in maintaining different versions on same machine.

I could able to suppress maintenance dialog, but the there are lot of issues in that.

Is this caused because GUID remains same for all the builds ?

I have the following issues,

1. When I am installing for the second time, the files get copied in the earlier installed directory even immeterial of the directory choosen for the second time.
2. When I am installing for the second time, the installation/uninstallation keys are not getting updated. So, the installation still points to the earlier installation.

My qestions here are,

Is it possible to achieve my requirements with IS Developer 7.02?
Does any your products can fullfil my requirements ?

Please let me know.

Thanks in advance,
Daya
