I have BaseApp.msi and i have added all the files via dynamic linking. Now, i have created MajorUpgrade.msi which is a major upgrade of BaseApp.msi.
MajorUpgrade.msi's content has also been added to the project via dynamic file linking.
I want to know is it safe to use dynamic file linking in the above scenarios? should i be adding the files statically? if there are dangers in adding the files dynamically, what are they?
thanks for any responses on this.

Is it safe? I wouldn't have thought so. If a versioned file in BaseApp.MSI's source somehow gets updated, that's going to mess up the versioning for that file in MajorUpgrade.MSI, isn't it? Sounds like you need to implement some source control software...
