Create Trail + Full Version setups

I need to create 2 MSI setups for the same product (with the same version number); A trail version setup and a full version setup.

When the full version setup is run, it needs to check and remove the trail version (if it's been installed), before it installs the full version.

How do I do this?
I'm using InstallShield Express X.

It would also be cool if the Trail version setup doesn't install, if the Full Version is ready installed.

Thank you for your help.

The two setups should have difefrent product codes. Then you might be able to do it using the "previous versions" section in Express. But I'm not sure if there enoough flexibility for this in Express. Otherwise you will need the Professional edition.
