merge modules for updates
Posted 20 December 2005 - 20:34
Our company just switched our development tools from VC++ 6.0 to Visual Studio .NET 2003. As a result, I need to add some new DLLs to the install (e.g. mfc71.dll). I've already figured out which merge modules to include with the install. This is working fine when I install our products for the first time on a computer.
I haven't been able to figure out how to do an update with these new merge modules. In other words, when I do an update (on a pc where our products were previously installed), I can see the latest version of an EXE or a DLL; but the new DLLs from the merge modules are not installed.
What do I need to do to get these merge modules to install the DLLs when I do an update?
Thanks in advance for any help.

I never worked with this. Installshield moslty update a dll or other binary depending upon its version string matching. Please search for this topic in HelpNet.
Sorry for not providing detailed help.
