View Full Version : Upgrade overwriting files

11-01-2004, 06:40 PM
I have a project which comes in two flavours: full install and upgrade. When the user installs an upgrade I do not want it to overwrite the ini file because the user may have made changes to their preferences.

However, when I inherited the project the ini file was included. I have set the ini file to Never Overwrite, however, the ini file is uninstalled before the installation commences.

I have looked into KB article Q105223 however, we want users to be able to upgrade from any version so the product guid can not be constant.

I need to know if there is any way of preventing the software being uninstalled prior to an upgrade or at least prevent select files being uninstalled. Please please please help!
