I need to create a new version of your program and want to be able to update existing installations either with a full install package or with a patch package.

However, I have a requirement to rollback a patch to its original stage after the user uninstall the patch. Please do not mistake this as the current rollback feature provided by installshield when installation fails.

I have heard that MSI installer have this feature but MSI 3.0 needs Windows 2000 SP3 and above. My installer needs to be able to run on Windows 98. Does MSI 2.0 has this feature as well? Where can I find more accurate information on this? Is the MSI Windows Installer stable enough?

No, this is only available in MSI 3.0 or above.
