Major upgrades involved? If so, "rolling back" major upgrades is an unsolved (aka: really freakin' hard) issue in Burn today. The old bundles must be repaired.

Subject: [wix-users] two packages, three bundles

For my product, I have separate MSI files for the client and server. I then have three bundles: Client, Server, and Combo. The combo installs both client and server packages. My QA team has reported some confusion when they install the combo after one of the other two. If you uninstall the combo it uninstalls the client and/or the server but leaves the bundle entries in the Add/Remove Programs. What would be the recommended approach here? I think the combo installer should replace the client and/or server packages that are already installed, but I don't see how to give it two upgrade codes.
