I've got a Basic MSI project that include a merge module. During minor upgrade, all newer files (with new versions) in the main setup get updated correctly, but none of the newer files that are included in the merge module are updated to newer version.

Please help!! It's critical and very urgent!

Check to see if you are using System Searches in your merge module for testing if files need to be installed. I have found that in my projects the files for the merge modules are being imported by the projects but the system searches which populate the properties I use for conditional installation are not being imported. I had to add these directly to my main project to get it to work! If you build your project uncompressed you can open the MSI file in Developer or ORCA and view the associated tables to see if the entries are coming in

Have you tried running the install with log mode enabled?
msiexec /I "msipackage.msi" /L*V c:\msilog.txt

This should tell you why the files are not being installed.

It might have something to do with your re-install mode settings
