Force a New Component Installation in Minor Upgrade?

I am creating a minor upgrade where a a new component is created.

For some reason, the new component is not being installed. I have gone through the requirements for a minor upgrade and can't seem to find anything wrong. Also, the installation log just shows it not being installed. My question is this.

Can you force the installation of a new component in a minor upgrade?

A new component can be added if you are using Windows Installer 2.0 or later If it is not happening try

• Remote Installation—Set this property to Favor Parent.
• Required—Set this property to Yes.
