The install for my program works great. The problem I am having is when I make an install for a new version.

I change the version number of the product and the GUID of the product in the general information section. This works good. The new install installs correctly and doesn't complain that the same version existing already.

The problem is that afterwards there are multiple occurences of the product in Add/Remove programs under windows.

How can I make it so that there will only be one occurence ?

Thanks,
Dave

You will need to create a upgrade. For steps, please refer to Update Tasks (http://documentation.installshield.com/Robo/BIN/Robo.dll?tpc=/robo/projects/isxhelpx/IHelpHowDoIPatching.htm).
