Patch & Version Relationship

I have three different versions: v1.0, v1.1 and v1.2

I want to create a single patch applied to all previous versions (v1.0 and v1.1).

In the "patch design," we have:

Latest setup = v1.2
Previous Setup "A" = v1.0
Previous Setup "B" = v1.1

Problem: if v1.0 installed, the patch does not modify files that have changed between v1.0 and v1.1.
Workaround: In Previous Setup "A" Version Relationship, I have to change "Previous Version <= Latest Version Setup" to "Previous version> = Setup Latest Version"

Why? This is illogical.

The naming of these options is misleading. In general you'll want to use = to make sure the existing version is exactly the same as the one you created the patch for. Other relations allow the patch to be applied to an existing version that is different from the one it was created for.

I tried using "=" but without success.
Only the "> =" works.
In my case, whenever we have a new product (version n+1), the current LATEST master (version n) is added to PREVIOUS masters and the LATEST master is replaced by the new product.
We want the update.exe file be able to update several different versions (0.0, 0.1, 0.2 ...)
I still do not understand well the purpose of this property.

Thank you
