I have created msi for papercut client 12 by capturing the setup.My target is win 7 64 bit.
The app installs to program files(x86) but i have to also add 2 folders to program files\windows sidebar\gadgets.
So I have created msi accordingly with 64 bit folder structure.Also I have to handle upgrade to previous version(11.5) on build.
now the problem is that my msi works fine if installed on clean build without previous version installed.
but while upgrading the previous version my msi does not copy those folders to program files\windows sidebar\gadgets.
but on launching the shortcut it repairs and copies the 2 folders. but this is undesired as the location "program files\windows sidebar\gadgets" is machine
specific and not user specific.so this has to be performed during installation(upgrade) and not after repairing.
need some help on this pls.....[&:]

first thing i would check is that RemoveExistingProducts action is done before installing the new version. by default, this action is done after the installation.
