Updating Prog v1.0 installer to Prog 1.1

Okay so here's the situation.

Prog v 1.0 installer launches a separate non-msi based installer to install Prog2 through a custom action. Now when I upgrade to Prog v 1.1 I explicitly tell the upgrade to leave the the Prog2 install alone (ie don't uninstall it), the install works fine.

However at the end, I go to the control add/remove dialog, and there's two entries.

Prog v.1.0
Prog v.1.1

Is there away around this mess? Has anyone experienced this before?

Thanks in advance...

If you ahve kicked of the V1.0 install with a custom action, and also V1.0 did not use windows installer then it will leave its entry in add/remove programs because it is still technically installed.

You can either delete the entry from the registry, or perform a V1.0 uninstall during the V1.1 install.
