Re: Error 1316: The Specified account already exists.

The name of the MSI file or the Product Name (under General Information or the Release) cannot change. If so, this error is triggered when the user tries to run your upgrade.

It's rather stupid since the GUIDs should be what determines the product and upgrade build. We want to use the name to reflect the new version but that's not possible without preventing the user from installing it over the previous build.
