Installed files not overwritten

I've imported an InstallShield 6.3 project into InstallShield Developer 7 which uses an InstallScript with a single program-endprogram script. The problem I'm having (amongst many others - I'm new to IS and man is it confusing!) is that when I install over an existing version of my product, the older files do not get overwritten. Note that these files are installed into the system folder (not sure if that has anything to do with it). I'm using FeatureMoveData to copy the files over and I've tried using the REINSTALLMODE property set to 'amus', to no avail. Is there a way directly from the script to ensure that all of my newer files get copied over the existing ones. Oh, and yes these files have versions in them. Any help is *greatly* appreciated!

Look for old junk references in here:

You might set Shared to No for components that aren't.

I suspect that your new files are being installed to some other location. Double check the destination setting of your components.
