Hi.. here is a weird behavior my package is showing.

I am upgrading flash player.
We got the source as lagacy setup. we created a msi and included the upgrade codes of the previous versions in the upgarde table.
positioned the "RemoveExistingProducts" property between InstallValidate and InstallInitialize action.

Now lets say; version X is installed on my build and m installing version Y wherein Version Y>X.
If i install Y; few of the files does not get removed from the build (upgrade was not proper).
However if i uninstall Y and reinstall it the older version files which were remaining on the build gets removed (can say upgrade is working on 2nd install).

i am unable to figure out what might be the issue.
Please suggest wat m i missing out...Any ideas are welcome.

Is your previous version a packaged one or a legacy setup ?
Let us know the old and the new versions that you are using..

Also check the following if your previous version is a packaged one:
Install your previous version, uninstall it and reinstall the same again and check if the installation is fine....
