Hello all,

I need help.

I am using InstallShield Developer 7.04.

Version 1.0 of our Product is released.
Now I have created a minor upgrade. Version number and PackageCode changed. In the setup.ini I have added "CmdLine=REINSTALLMODE=voums REINSTALL=ALL".

The upgrade works fine, but I want to use the same setup to install the version 1.1 on a computer where the old version is not installed.
If there is no older version installed, the dialogs of the FirstUIBefore section are called, but no files are copied.

Does anybody have a solution?

You can create your own .exe file which should execute the setup.exe without any command line parameters and execute the .msi file if it is an upgrade, e.g.
>msiexec.exe /i [PackageName].msi REINSTALMODE=vomus REINSTALL=ALL
