Force reinstall of dynamically linked folder

Dear experts,

I have an InstallShield project that includes a component that consists of a dynamically linked folder. This folder contains a number of unversioned files. Those are mostly html files and resources. When I install a new version on top of an existing product setup, those dynamically linked files do not get upgraded. Is there a way to force upgrade of those dynamically linked files without uninstalling the older version of the product?

Thank you for your help.

It may depend on what project type you use.  We had this issue and had to switch to an InstallScript (only) project.  Then you can configure the component like the attached.

This is a basic MSI project. Is there any way to address this problem without changing the project type?

If there is a solution to this issue without changing the project type, I am unaware of it.
