I don't want that the file in a component to be overwritten when a repair of the product is triggered. How can I achieve this. I was thinking about not setting a keypath or using "never overwrite if keypath exists"

What kind of file is it; versioned or non-versioned?
For non-versioned is the File entry added to the MsiFileHash table?
Is the msidbComponentAttributesNeverOverwrite attribute bit set on the Component holding the file?
What does a verbose log say?

The file may get installed even if you remove the keypath, it all depends if it's a feature- or component level repair.
