If a component does not have a key file set, how are patches, upgrades and repaires impacted?

If it finds however that the key element needs to be updated, then it will process all other files in the component according to the overwrite rules (i.e. don't overwrite a newer file with an older version etc.)

When you dynamically link files to a component I assume a single component is created and a keyfiles is automatically selected? (I am asking because I read somewhere that Installshield Developer will create one component per file included in a dynamic component, this can't be right?)

If you have sub folders, extra components will be created for them.

situation (1) :
one of component has 5 files with a text file, which is a key file. after first installation, this file has been modified (incorrectly). so user decided to reinstall whole application to have a fresh setting.
according to your explanation, this won't work. because the key file's version has not been changed. and since this is newer version than the installer (MSI) has.
is there a way to overwrite this file no matter what???
