    Error:-1638 Another version... 1729 -- Configuration failed

    Hi.

    I am failing to upgrade my installation product: My project Installshield Spring 12 Script MSI, I have multiple components and only 2 Features.My upgrade include only one Feature ( i am using release flag for this).
    My upgrade using function OnResumeUIBefore(), by running "upgrade.exe REINSTALLMODE=aums ADDLOCAL=ALL REINSTALL=ALL"
    If I am running install(setup.exe) with parameters REINSTALLMODE=aums ADDLOCAL=ALL REINSTALL=ALL" - reinstall works fine, but if I run "upgrade.exe REINSTALLMODE=aums ADDLOCAL=ALL REINSTALL=ALL" - I have Feature transfer Error: -1638 Another version of this product already installed. Installation of this version cannot continue....

    I run installation with log /verbose "fileName" and found one failure:


    PROPERTY CHANGE: Adding PackagecodeChanging property. Its value is '1'.
    Note: 1: 1729
    Product: XXXXX -- Configuration failed.
    I have feeling that I am doing something wrong with not adding the feature? My Package Code changing during the build.

    I really appreciate any suggestions, I tried multiple solution on google. I know this site the best one.

    Thanks a lot.
    P.S. I tried to attach the file, but I don't have permissions.

    Also i have these lines in my log:

    I resolved by changing command line parameter for running setup.exe:
    We had:
    REINSTALLMODE=aums
    But correct one:
    REINSTALLMODE=vamus

    v means: Use to run from the source package and re-cache the local package. Do not use the v reinstall option code for the first installation of an application or feature.

    MsiOpenPackage Error 1638

    I have two products , Product A and Product B created with InstallShield. Each of them have two versions, say 1.9.5 and 1.9.6. I have the version 1.9.5 installed on the machine. For Product A, When I try to open the msi from 1.9.6 to stream some of its dlls, I get the error 1638. another version of the product is already installed. However the same does not happen on Product B.
    The product code remains the same on both lower and higher version of Product A and Product B. The packagecode and upgradecode are modified for lower and higher version of Product A and Product B.

    Can you please throw some light on what could be the issue with Product A.
