I need to replace files in an installation with new files thru a patch, the problem is the new files have the same version no. as the ones they are replacing.

I can't bring these files in thru a patch as Installshield won't replace the files unless the version is different to the files already installed.

Is there any solution to this?

Thanks.

How about the REINSTALLMODE public property?

msiexec /p Blablabla.msp REINSTALL=ALL REINSTALLMODE=amus
