The problem is as follows.

I installed a product with a set of files to a computer. I created a minor upgrade (same product code, different version, different package code). The has an updated file and one file that is removed from the product (compared to the first package).

The updated file is correctly installed. The problem is that the file removed from the product is NOT removed with the upgrade. An when the product is uninstalled thereafter, the file still exists on the pc.

What can I do to let the file be removed at upgrade-time?

Thanks in advance,
Edwin

Did you add the file to the RemoveFile table? See "How Do I Remove Files That Were Created by My Product?" in the InstallShield help.

No, I didn't know that it's required to manually enter the file that must be removed.
