I've tried everything possible..to upgrade my SW from Version1.0 to 1.1.

Every time I try to upgrade using the below command line
msiexec /i abc.msi REINSTALL=ALL REINSTALLMODE=vomus /L*v verbose.log

it's running the cached version of the file and not the current(1.1) MSI.

I might've deleted and added the files in the VS.net Proj Workspace from 1.0 to 1.1...apart from that...I did not commit any other sin.(of course opting MSI).

Now how would I update the SW to 1.1?? any ideas..

when ever I try to run the above command line below is the out put of the log file...
"MSI (s) (D4:1C): Skipping action: SetODBCFolders (condition is false)
MSI (s) (D4:1C): Doing action: InstallValidate
Action start 1:28:28: InstallValidate.
MSI (s) (D4:1C): Feature: DefaultFeature; Installed: Advertise; Request: Reinstall; Action: Reinstall
MSI (s) (D4:1C): Component: C__00E098D55C2C40D9AFB2FF8AF37873B2; Installed: Local; Request: Null; Action: Null
MSI (s) (D4:1C): Component: C__06FA912D6DD84C38B831E92390493195; Installed: Local; Request: Null; Action: Null
MSI (s) (D4:1C): Component: C__0967E3BEAFCC43DD8F92A5B29805D361; Installed: Absent; Request: Null; Action: Null"

why is the action NULL and Request NULL??

Can any one throw some light on this??

This doesn't necessarily mean that you're running the cached msi. You should see the package code of the msi that's being used in the log. Is it the old or the new PackageCode? (You did change the PackageCode, didn't you?)
