I'm trying Installshield 12 and I having been doing some tests.

I created an Installscript project and put a single executable file in Application Data.

At the target directory I put the same file and run it, after that I debugged the project but nothing happened. The Installshield didn´t recognize that the file was in use, if I tried to copy the same file manually the Operating System didn't allow.

Someone could explain how can I treat and why Installshield did not identify files in use ?

Thanks !

If the existing file had a lower version than the file in your setup, InstallShield should have requested a reboot at the end of the install to replace the file during the reboot.
