Major Upgrade not installing one versioned file

Have a major upgrade that is not replacing one versioned file. The previous version file is 1.0.4374.27100 and the new version is 1.0.5.0. I am assuming that the new file is versioned greater but I feel that assumption is wrong. The log shows: Installed: Local; Request: Absent; Action: Absent
The way around is to have a CA copy the new file before FileCosting and then add the old file after Costing is completed.
Does the file version really matter on Major Upgrades?

What do you have your Major upgrade settings set to? I have 2012 and for me to get to them, it's.. Media - Upgrades - Prepare Setup For Upgrade Scenarios - Upgrade Windows Installer Setup - Major Upgrade Settings or Major Upgrade

Not understanding your reply. Upgrade settings are not the issue rather the versioned file.

I had a problem with a major upgrade not upgrading all of my files from version to version, it turned out to be the settings in the upgrade section.

Edit: The major upgrade settings and I made sure my all my files were set to Always Overwrite in the properties.

Windows Installer considers a version field of 4374 to be greater (newer) than a version field of 5.

So, to fix this, you may need to increment the thirld field to be a number that is greater than 4374, or change the second field to be greater than 0.
