I have a question. You have changed version in first place I mean 1.00.0000 to 2.00.000 and applied major upgrade steps. If we change in second place I mean after first dot e.g. 1.20.0000 , in this case can we apply major upgrade steps and does it work like uninstall previous version 1.00.0000 completely and install latest version and files?

Hi Madhu_Gaddada,

 

Yes you can change the second number also to create a major upgrade and it will work, however the best recommended method from Microsoft for creating a major upgrade is to change first number
