[wix-users] Patch installation

Question - on NON executable object (in particular, XLAM files - which really ARE executable) how do they do versioning?  Interestingly, if you look, the version is always XX.XX.XX - I tend to put the version in the tag

Hi Stephanie,

Executable objects are installed based on the Version number in the executable being greater than the currently installed version of the executable. That's it. No workarounds, Its not date based or difference based. Just version. This is a Windows Installer behaviour, not WiX.
