Changing Component Names

I am restructuring an InstallScript MSI package. If I rename a component will this effect IS's capability of executing a succesful upgrade on a previous version of my software. I seem to remember having a problem with this, but I can't find the reference. I see something that says if I change the component code I have to do a major upgrade, but does changing the name of the component change the component code.

you can only rename components on a major upgrade. This performs a full uninstall. To answer your question, yes you will have trouble updated an existing installation.
