View Full Version : The worlds most basic patch problem

Hi All,

I have not used InstallShield before and am having a lot of trouble wrapping my head around it.

I have developed a number of versions of an MS Access application, which I have distributed as MSI files using the MS Access Packaging Wizard. Each of these have been made available as a full install.

I successfully managed to build an Installshield quick patch to upgrade version 1.0.0 of my software to 1.1.0. However I have now developed v2.0.0 and want to upgrade all of my users to this level. The users will be running one of the following installs:
1) v1.0.0 from a full install
2) v1.1.0 from a full install
3) v1.1.0 from a full install of 1.0.0 + the v1.1.0 patch

I seem to be able to create a quick patch to get from each of these installs to v2.0.0, but would like the patch to just overwrite the file in question, no matter what version it is or which msi file it came from.

Does anyone know how to do this?

Thanks,

Gary
