Problem replacing exe files after installing

Hi guys,

The situation is like this. The installation was successfull. The files is created in the desire folder .. let say drive C in NEW folder.
I replace some of the exe in the NEW folder with the latest exe files. But after i replace, when i call those exe files to be execute, windows will continously call for the setup.exe to re-install again. It has detected those files are being altered.

My problem is, is there anyway i can replace those files without goin through patch. Or can i turn this feature off?

This is a built in feature of MSI. Please read the following article:

If you do not want this then do not use MSI technology for Installation creation.
