Software Deployment Question

Upgarde Logic Not working

03/05/2009 2385 views
This is regrading TEMS Investigation application.

We need to apply upgrade logic to a vendor MSI.

The older package is already there in the LIVE server. But the new MSI what we have and the old MSI have the same product codes. If we change the product code of the new MSI, then it is doing the upgarde but one of the shortcuts is not functioning properly.

The other option we tried is to write a VB Script that will check the existing product code and uninstall the application. We kept this VB Script above FindRelatedProducts in Execute Immediate mode. But it is not working. It is doing the repair of the old application rather than upgarding.

Could you please help me to resolve this issue?

VBScript? Why make it so complicated? Jeez...

Upgrades are pretty straightforward. Start your reading here http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/aa370579(VS.85).aspx. Once you have digested that, move here http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/aa372379(VS.85).aspx

When we try for a normal upgrade.....the shortcut is not launching properly and it is throwing error.

What does your command line look like?
What does a verbose log of the upgrade tell you? That you didn't create a log yet? :)
