Hi,


I am having trouble with the rollback of our software. Some of the engineers complaint that they cannot rollback to a few versions older that the current one. They can only rollback if they do an uninstall, which they do not want to.

For most of the components, I selected alwaysoverwrite and others newversion/data. I would like to keep this setting. However, I would like them to have the ability of rolling back to the version they want. Is there any way I can do this?

Thanks,
Brian

With Windows Installer, the closest thing is to use uninstallable patches with MSI 3.x; with updates packaged as full installers, there's currently no way to roll back without an uninstallation...
