I am trying to roll out a program I just created to all the computers on our network. I am very new to the InstallShield program as well as programming in general.

I created my first version and set it as 1.0.0. I then used pdqdeploy to install it to a couple test computers. I resolved a few bugs then tried to push it out again, but I get an error message telling me another version is already installed.

Please tell me what to do to make this program upgradable. I will be making frequent changes to it and I will not have the capability to manually uninstall it from each machine.

Thank you.

Minor upgrades must be pushed with a REINSTALL parameter; Major upgrades can handle this automatically, and let you make more significant changes to your architecture than a minor upgrade allows. For internal purposes I would suggest you create a major upgrade (change your product code and version in any of the first three parts) with each release.
