View Full Version : Uninstall/Install Problem

10-26-2005, 04:22 PM

here is my problem in detail. I am using a basic MSI with Installshield 11.

When doing a major upgrade, the new install uninstalls the previous version and installs the new version correctly. All seems fine.

But when I open the application for the first time after that, I get a series of Windows Installer pop-ups saying Installing etc. and finally after 6,7 pop-ups it asks me if I want to reboot. On saying No and opening the application again, all seems to work fine.

The next time I open the app all works fine. This happens ONLY when doing a major upgrade and when opening app FIRST time.

This does not happen for a minor upgrade or if the same new version is installed on a pristine machine.

Is this normal? Does anyone have any ideas how to prevent this irritating occurance or why it happens. Please help.
