I've recently moved into the "Upgrade world". It didn't take long until we had to release a bug fix.

I'm now familiar with specifying an upgrade path however if I Install V1.0 after V1.1 I end up with two installations.

I would like as a minimum to see the user prompted with a message which indicates a newer version of the product is installed and that they should use Add/Remove programs to remove the current installation. Ideally the user would be given the option to Downgrade the product but I'm not sure if this fits in with MSI best practices.

Any thoughts,

Mike D.
