Hello all,

I have found that for some of my installs that have multiple versions, if I run the older install and then the newer one, I will find more then one entry for that product in the add/remove programs portion of control panel (windows 2000). So if I run 3 installs for a product, I will see 3 entries in add/remove programs. Has anyone else seen this and how can it be resolved?

Thanks.

What version of Express are you using? If you are using 3.03 or 3.5x you can use the Upgrade Path to distribute your newer versions. What this does is totally uninstall the previous version (without prompting the user) and then install the newer version. Also, I think all three of your versions have differenet Product Codes. Otherwise when installing a newer version you will get a message saying that a previous version already exists on the computer.
