Uninstall after Update
Posted 28 October 2003 - 12:21
I yust tested a deinstallation of a program which I updateted before. I see that the new file from the update are not deleted.
1.) I installed product x
2.) I updated product x. The files a,b and c are new.
3.) I uninstall pproduct x. All files are deleted, only a,b and c are not deleted.
Is it the normal behavior of uninstalling or did I some mistake in my setup?

Also generate a log file to see why the files don't get deleted.

I think it´s of cause that I does´nt change the update-code. I must generate setup with IsCmdBld.exe. How can I change the Update-Code without the IDE?

I try to make an installation that should work for more than one version of our product. It should be posible to patch (2.21 Build D1010 to 2.21 Build D1012) and update (2.21 -> 2.22). I try to use a batch to generate the setup and after that the ProduchtVersion-Property (example: 2.21.D1010) is set by a short vbs. The release configuration ist set up one time by IDE. Isn´t it possible to change the PackageCode without IDE.

1: After installing the second time, are there more than 1 entry in add/remove products. If you see more than 2 entries, then your two products are installed as "separate products".
2: What changes in your installation package for each build? Version number, product code, upgrade code, package code?
3: In your last post it sounds as if you are using patches? Are you delivering the setup as a patch?

thank you for your reply.
1.) I see only one Product in add/remove
Version number = change by vbs
product code = not changed
upgrade code = not changed
package code = not changed
3.) I use normal setup and not patch. I think this is controlled by the version number?
You see, I not shure what I´m doing.
