Updating does not occur

I have express version

I change the product version number and product code GUID but leave the Upgrade code the same.

When I run the setup, it runs without errors but the executable on the target machine does not change.

Within Add/Remove, I now have two installs of the same product. If I remove the newer version install, then delete the executable on the target machine, then run setup, the new executable is there.

Can anyone help with this?

Re: Updating does not occur

Use the 'Upgrade Paths' view. Create a new item and browse to the earlier version of msi, which you want to uninstall.

Thanks,

Re: Updating does not occur

I don't understand why it doesn't overwrite the original files. The upgrade code has not changed and the product code has along with a version number change.

It acts like a completely new install but the files (an executable) does not copy over the existing file.
