I modified 4 idt files (component, featurecomponent, file, media). When the msi is run, it says the upgrade ran, but no files are updated.

changes to component.idt:
- Added file with the new ComponentId Guid I created.

changes to featurecomponents.idt
- Added file

changes to file.idt:
- Added file, bumped the sequence count

changes to media.idt
- bumped the last sequence

Changed PackageCode and ProductVersion

What else is left?

What is your REINSTALLMODE set to?
Also, run using a log file, this should help you find the problem.

REINSTALLMODE is vamus. I couldn't see the problem in the logs.

Found a fix for my problem. To add a single file to the installation I treated the new file as a subfeature by modifying Feature.idt and FeatureComponents.idt.

I added a new row to Feature.idt to identify the sub feature; i.e. Parent=old feature and attributes = 18.

Here's a reference:
