Hi,

I have a piece of software installed on my test machine, and when i try to upgrade the software, this is successful, however then registry settings are erased and reset, anyone have any suggestions?

Thanks

Sarah

Sarah,

This will happen if you're performing a Major Upgrade, because a Major Upgrade REMOVES the old version before installing the new version.

If you wish the registry keys to stay there and just be updated, you'll want to use a Minor Upgrade.

Thanks :)

Does this there fore mean that i will need to use a patch? rather than rebuilding everything as i am doing at the mo?
