View Full Version : Suite: How implement upgrade scenario

05-25-2012, 09:09 AM

I want to implement upgrade scenario for end user. If previous version of product installed and user launch new suite then he should see Question whether he want to upgrade, but currently I see only Repair/Remove dialog.

How to get rid of this Repair/Remove dialog in case of I launched newer version of Suite and process upgrade?

My projects structure:
1. Basic MSI:
- x86
- x64

2. Suite project which uses basic msi from previous step as dependency packages. To eliminate appearance of two programs entry, suite project "Show Add or Remove Programs Entry" set to No.
I have tried different combination detection conditions (MSIUpgrade) but wasn't able to get desired upgrade behavior.

Suite upgrades mimic major upgrades and will typically look just like a first-time installation. To make this work, ensure that you've increased the version number on your project, and that the conditions using SuiteInstalled are in place like in a new Suite/Advanced UI project.
