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?

How about the REINSTALLMODE public property?

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