Hi,

New to Installshield. How do you setup a project (msi) to automatically uninstall the previous build version and then install the current one?

thanks in advance.

Lookup Major Upgrade in the help. This sounds like what you need to do. One caveat to remember is that if the previous version is not designed to check for later major upgrades the previous version will still install even if the later version is installed. Check out "How do I prevent an old package from installing over a newer version?" for more information.
