Hello, I am evaluating Installshield Pro 11 for the always overwrite feature which installshield developer7 did not have and caused me pain. However I cannot change the properties of dynamically linked files and under properties is where the always overwrite checkbox should be. I am just creating new components under my [INSTALLDIR] and dynamic file linking is the only method I know to assign files to that component. I really really need a way to make sure files are ALWAYS overwritten for every component of every project. Does anyone have any suggestions/advice for assuring this w/ v11. Thanks.

I guess if I drag and drop the files from source to destination, that will work and give me the properties. But if a file changes on the source, I must go in and add it to the destination, where before it would dynamically update, but that is no big deal. Again any suggestions please let me know. Thanks.
