Installshield and MSI issue
Hi guys, I am a newbie to application packaging so hopefully someone can assist me.
Firstly the environment I have been testing in is Windows 7 32 bit and 64 bit.
I have two installshield setup.exe files for two major versions of the same piece of software.
If I install the first one then the second one it works fine, ie as it is a major version upgrade it successfully removes the old one and then installs the new one.
I want to use MSI's for the logging capabilities and to keep to a standard where I work.
I have extacted the first MSI and can install it after editing to make the ISSETUPDRIVEN equal to 1.
Then it looks ok.
When I install the second MSI it looks ok, says its removing the old one and installing the new one etc.
When I start the application it also runs the new version.
The problem is, only when using the two MSI's when I look in Programs and Features the old one still shows up.
When I used the Installshield files, it did not show up.
Question, how do I tell what is going on differently from the Installshield file compared to the extracted MSI.
Thanks and I hope this question is clear as I may not be using the correct terminology etc.
