No upgrade when selecting "complete" installation

When I install the product by selecting "complete" installation (via user interface: typical, complete, custom), everything installs fine.

On the other hand, when I try to do the same - and a previous version of the product is already installed - so, it's an upgrade - no feature or component gets installed. (Also no feature or component gets uninstalled.)

The log then reports:
Installed: Absent;   Request: Null;   Action: Null
for all components and features.

When I do the same upgrade by selecting some features in a "custom" setup, the features and components get installed resp. deinstalled fine.

When I do a fresh installation, selecting a "complete" setup, the files get installed, too.

[Product code and version number have changed between versions; upgrade code has remained the same; upgrade table is OK; (top-level) features are marked "required".
Everything worked with the previous versions of the setup program. I think all I've changed is introducing two command line parameters, conditionally adding a dialog form, and writing to the registry.]

- Why does a "complete" "upgrade" not install as supposed?

- Thank you for any piece of information or idea!

Have the component codes changed by any chance?

In you log check what the current state of the features, maybe they were set to advertise?
