Hello,

I hope this isn't a dumb question, but I've never needed to do anything like this before. The installer I am working on has three different options. The basic setup is the same, but some of the files are different. What I would like to do when a user selects Modify from the maintenance menu is delete the files that are no longer needed and install the files that are needed. How can I do this? Do I need to know where the previous installation was installed and if so, how do I find out?

I really appreciate any help you can provide. I searched the forum, but I didn't find anything, so please forgive me if this is a duplicate post.

Thanks,
Nick

My understanding is that if you de-select the components that are no longer needed (e.g. through script using ComponentSelectItem) then they will automatically be removed.

Laterness,
Jon
