How can I check for older version of MS Project installed to installed Newer version. Using Wise Pacakage Studio 5 is there any way out to.

1) Older versions should be removed to install newer version.
2) If Unable to remove the older version needs to pop an error display to Uninstall a older version.

Awaiting Quick Response.

Are you using AppDeploy's Repackager for this as if not you should be asking this in the "Package Development" forum.

In the Upgrade page from the Installation Expert view just point to the old(er) MSI version(s).
You may also need to check where the RemoveExistingProducts action is sequenced.

I want to check randomly, if there is any older version of application is installed for example I need to install MS Project 2000 and I need to check randomly if any previous version of Project 2000 is installed then need to Uninstall it and Install a new version.

The AppDeploy Repackager does not support such a check-- you'll have to use another tool. And like AngelD said, that belongs in the package development forum so I'm moving it for your benefit.

Thanks Bob!

yshariff,

You could use AppSearch to find out an uniq file or registry entry for older version of MS Project.
If found search through the HKLM\...\Uninstall registry key for "Project" and find the uninstall key there.

However, I would instead prompt the installer to remove it manually first and then go ahead with the actual installation.
If this is going to be deployed in "your" environment then doing an application inventory should give you more information of what to look for.
