Remove Component from a previous installer without doing a full uninstall
We got a problem that not sure how to solve within our product MIS installer for our software. The problem is that we have a component (Module A) that this put on the target computer in a previous installer, and we have removed Module A in our new installer version. We are trying to work out how to remove the Module A without fully uninstalling our product when upgrading to our latest version.
The component has become redundant because files under Module A have been moved to a new folder and are covered in another component (Module B) the installer.
We have tried keeping Module A with all file references and set the Uninstall Superseded Component to Yes. However, we are still finding that the component is getting Module A by the new installer cause an error when running our software.
Any help on how to configure the MSI would gratefully received.
