I have previously used the version number as part of the program name for install (i.e., MyProgram 1-1.exe). I now think this is not necessarily wise and am considering omission of the version number. How can I do a major upgrade and remove the old version before installing the new one when the name is different? I would prefer that the user not have to go to Add/Remove Programs and manually uninstall the old version before installing the new one. :confused:
