In a minor update, I want to condition a custom action on the version number of the existing (previous) installation. Is there a reasonably painless way to get this version number, or do I have to go sifting through the Install registry?

You can use the FindRelatedProducts action to find any app/version range without having to uninstall it as defined in your Upgrade table. Just set the Remove attribute to "no" and set the others to detect the package you want. You can then use the results to conditionalise your CA.


Good luck,
