Hi

1. In the "windows installation editor" go to "upgrades" (bottom, left side).
2. click Add and add your old WinZip msi.
3. you should correct the order of installation and uninstallation. Go to "Msi Script", "Execute Immediate" and
move "RemoveExistingProducts" (bottom) up before "InstallValidate".

Hi sumit,
please read this:

Which versions are we talking about here?
There is no need for using wise, as the newest version already comes as an MSI.
Create a transform with ORCA to remove the older one with a CA.
