View Full Version : Key of file changes when i change destination path

11-30-2015, 05:56 AM

My scenario is as below :

Released major version there years back. Trying to patch the major version with a patch. During patching trying to remove 9 files. for 7 of the files it works well. For file removal I have added them in RemoveFile table and changed their path to some different folder.

For two files for above mechanism does not work. When I change their destination path the key of the file changes from say assembly.dll to assembly.1. If I specify key of the old component in removefile table it does not work.

I am curious why key of the file changes for some of the components and not for all.

Is there any elegant way to change the key of the files to its original state ?

Thanks in advance
