Hello all,

I am using an installshield project (11.5 express) that was already built and when releasing versions i change the product code and build an installable. Without uninstalling the previous version i installed the newer version, i found that there are multiple entries in Add or Remove Programs for the same product. I would appreciate if some one could help me in getting rid of this problem. I tried in many ways but of no use.

Thaks in Advance,
Hari

If you want to stop the new installer from adding a second copy, you should keep the product code the same as the previous version.

If you want to uninstall the old product and don't have the installer, run: msiexec /x {Your Product Code} Note that if you installed both to the same location, you might have to reinstall your new app.

If you just want to remove the entry from the control panel, delete this registry key: HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\UnInstall\{Your Product Code}
