Package Studio Err: An application already exist but you didn't check the box to overwrite.

I am currently using Wise Package studio Professional to repack install files. I went to the capture process and compiled the application onces.

The problem started when I made changes to the package and tried to save the changes. In Windows Installer Editor I keep getting a box saying:
" An application already exist with application 'my program name' and package 'my pack name' but you didn't check the box to overwrite the existing application."

I searched everywhere and cant fint this checkbox. I cannot find anything in the tutorial either. I made sure the folder where the project were stored had correct modify credentials but it did not help. Any one know where is the OVERWRITE checkbox located??? Thanks in advance.

It sounds like you have set up - but aren't using - the Wise Repository. As a bypass, simply remove the text from the 'Application' and 'Package' text-boxes on the 'Product Details' view in 'Installation Expert'.
Rating comments in this legacy AppDeploy message board thread won't reorder them,
so that the conversation will remain readable.
