    Files won't overwrite

    I have an installshield project that is set to overwrite 15 files in a folder tree. 3 files in the upper folder install correctly. A second level folder where 7 files are installed installs correctly. The last 4 files will not overwrite. These files are four files which exist in a larger second level folder. If I overwrite all files in the folder they will overwrite. If I select just these four files to overwrite, they will not. Any idea why??

    Go to Application Data -> Files and Folders

    And on the 'Destination compute's files' middle pane, right click on the specific file and choose properties. you will get an option 'Always Overwrite'.


    Hope this helps.

    Hi

    If i understand correctly,setting overwrite property to complete folder works,But specific to four files/second level folder is it not working?It will be better if you give us more context(If possible with snaps)


    Hope this helps,
    Thanks,
