Do you have a minor upgrade/patch entry in the Upgrades or Patch Design view, and some dynamic file links?

By setting up the previous-MSI-package entry as described in that warning message, InstallShield will attempt to ensure the File table, Media table, and Component table keys match up between the two packages; which in turn can make a big difference in the success of the minor upgrade, size of the patch file, and so on.
