I have a component whith properties NEVEROVERWRITE set to yes.
When i install my application for the first time, the files already present in this component are no overwrite and if is not exists, the files are installed.

When i make a reinstall, the files are always overwrite.
I use the command line REINSTALL=ALL and REINSTALLMODE=amus.

I use "a" because i want all files are installed a new time, except the files in the component NEVEROVERWRITE.

I think the parameter "a" make the property NEVEROVERWRITE ignored, but i'm not sure.

Somebody can help me for make a reinstallation who reinstall all files execept the component NEVEROVERWRITE.

I don't know from memory whether REINSTALLMODE=*a* beats Never Overwrite; you might consider creating an installation log file, and searching that for information explaning why MSI overwrote what it did...
