View Full Version : install removes user files

12-28-2004, 05:01 AM
I have just upgraded to VFP9 which comes with Installshield Express 5.0
The previous version (VFP8) came with Installshield Express version 3.5

I have successfully built a setup with this new version.
But this new setup removes every user file already existing in the Install Dir.
This did not hapen with the previopus version.

Any clue ?

I found out that the MSXML3 Merge modules that come with VFP9 are responsible for this behaviour.

I have done a setup that included only a small text file and the 3 MSXML3 related merge modules.
Only the ┬źAllwaysInstall┬╗ feature was present.

I installed it to a folder already containing another different small text file.

The MSXML3 files get installed to INSTALLDIR, which I supose is not intended.
The folder's pre-existing text file is removed.
If I uninstall immediately, 2 of the MSXML3 files remian in INSTALLDIR

I must conclude that this must be a bug in these merge modules.
