[font="trebuchet ms"]Hi,
[font="trebuchet ms"]
[font="trebuchet ms"]One of the component in my application has the key file changed. I created a patch to replace the old file. But the patch doesnt replace the old file.
[font="trebuchet ms"]
[font="trebuchet ms"]Can anyone tell is this the patch behaviour? If so, then how do i replace this file?
[font="trebuchet ms"]
[font="trebuchet ms"]Thanks.

Does the file contain version information? That is, is it an EXE, DLL, OCX or similar binary?

If not, what date/time stamps do the files have? Read up on how Windows Installer handles versioned and non-versioned files.

[font="trebuchet ms"]It is a dll.
[font="trebuchet ms"]
[font="trebuchet ms"]Actually [font="trebuchet ms"]the file(dll) itself is changed entirely. That is, both files(old and new) are different and have different names. So, if the patch is applied, it is not installing the new file.
[font="trebuchet ms"]
[font="trebuchet ms"]I googled and found that, If i create a new component and add the new file(dll) to it, patch will install the new file.
[font="trebuchet ms"]
[font="trebuchet ms"]But the old file remains un-removed. Is there a way that the old file can be removed by the patch?
[font="trebuchet ms"]
[font="trebuchet ms"]Thanks.
