InstallShield 2019 component not overwriting with newer files
I have a problem with a specific minor upgrade installation that refuses to overwrite newer files. The files have a newer version, (22.214.171.124 to 126.96.36.1993) and the installation uses the same product and upgrade codes. Tested with different package codes and with the same and nothing.
I am completely stuck. I have checked the ISM file through SVN history and found no changes since my previous minor upgrade that would prevent me from installing. The only thing different is that I don't use a couple of prerequisites that have nothing to do with the files I am changing.
I have NO idea why, but I tried something crazy and it worked.
I went to MEDIA -> Upgrades -> Upgrade Windows Installer Setup -> Common and changed the settings for Minor Upgrades and Major Upgrades to something else. I build and it worked. Files where copied and overwrote older versions. Changed back the settings to the ones I wanted, build again and it worked. Now the files are being copied and overwrite old files!
This seems to be some kind of crazy corruption, but I don't know what.
I have the R3 version of InstallShield 2o19, but this was also true for R1
