Do you know how to turn off the following feature?

When I install one of my products to a machine, it installs some VB controls. Then I try to install my development VB controls over the top of that, but what happens is my original install pops up and restores the files that were overwritten by the dev control install!

I need those dev controls to do my development but the original install won't stay out of my way.

Is that the same thing as advertisement? I have advertisement turned off...

Just get rid of the key files. Works for us :)

What other functionality does a key file provide, other than this? How will it change my installation?

Understand one thing: we do setups to be used by the corporation I am acontractor for. We have no concern for some things. One is that as far as we care the key files are a nuisance do to the auto repair.

If you write setups that will be delivered commercially to multiple customers you should investigate further. We don't care.
