I use intsall script project.

Old version is alreday installed on PC.
when User clicked setup.exe(new version),
I want to remove old version perfectly and sequentially reinstall new version automatically.

because old version is much different from new version in many case.
(new feature is added, and old feature is removed and install location is changed)

how can I make install script to do this? (reboot is not allowed!)


Thanks...

Hi There,

If you select "Major Upgrade" option under Upgrade View in IDE, your task will be taken care. And also just search for "Major Upgrade" in your help file and you will get all the information about Major Upgrade and how that should be added in your project.

Do you talk about Express version of Install Shield?
I can't find how to change the package code in this version.
