Your new Bundle can carry an upgrade of the MSI but your Bundle definitely needs to support silent operations to upgrade correctly.

Subject: [wix-users] Upgrade using Burn with Custom BA
I'm trying to upgrade my app that was previously installed using custom BA that chained prerequisites and the app's msi.
Doesn't matter whether I try doing a minor upgrade (changing only version number) or major upgrade (changing version number and also product Id), The new BA calls the old one with -uninstall -silent.
Why is that?
My old BA doesn't support silent uninstall? Is there a way around that? Can I just uninstall the msi? Or perhaps do a minor upgrade that doesn't try to uninstall the BA?
Thanks in advance,
Roni (Aron) Fuchs
