View Full Version : Install Deletes Files Marked 'Never Overwrite'

I'm using an Express Project from InstallShield Express 2008. I want the same install disk to work for new installs and upgrades. I've marked several files 'Never Overwrite'. I've got an upgrade path listed for the just-previous version. (Earlier versions had no UpgradeCode.)

The install deletes all the existing data files I want to remain, and then doesn't copy any new ones, leaving the app with NO DATA FILES WHATSOEVER!

I've tried several combinations with and without the upgrade path listed, yet it still deletes them! How do I stop it from deleting the data files?

1. INSTALL DATA FILES IF NONE EXIST.
2. NEVER DELETE EXISTING DATA FILES.

I have found the same problem. The same installation package created with InstallShield Express 5.0 works correctly
