Help?

I need to have a process where for each client I am creating a setup file with client-specific Access database and Excel GUIs. I am not messing with the registry, etc.

This means for 50 clients I'll need to execute 50 .msi files (VB automation will put the right files in the right places). However, with 50 msi files, I can't update each one with a release number.

The problem is that when I try to overwrite with a new set of files, it is requiring the prior version to be uninstalled. I need it to simply overwrite the old files if it currently exists.

I see references that this can be done, but I can't figure out how...can anyone please direct me??
