I have a question I would hope someone might be able to answer for me. Im in process of developing some new MSI setups for my company and I have come across a patching scenario that I cant seem to find a solution for. I have three versions of my setup. V1, V2 and V3. I have created patches that go from V1 to V2 and one from V2 to V3. Is it possible to create a single patch that upgrades either V1 OR V2 to V3?

Depending no the "tool" you're using; basically you generate the diff between two MSI versions so include all changes in MSI v3 and then generate the patch (MSP) between MSI v1 and v3.

Install all three version as- install forcefully by overwriting all the already installed files. -or- take a snapshot by installing all the three updates. I hope this helps.
