Hi,
I have created a patch/fix for an application. this patch installs a newer version of a file and a couple of new files.
When I try to remove the patch the new files are removed but the newer version of the file remains behind. I want this file to revert to it's original state and not remain as the newer version of the file. What can I do?
Rgds,
Mark

Windows Installer packages are all the same: they will only remove what they installed. If you want to restore an older version of a file, then you'll need to add a Custom Action to make a copy of the file (or files) you're replacing and record their names (and possibly other data, like version number and so on) somewhere at install-time and another CA to restore the appropriate file at uninstall time.
