Ahh!! Something is bringing miscommunication!!!

I am thinking on the second part of the original question, which goes like

on that.

Or is there any better idea???

My thought was to have type 19 CA to display appropriate downgrade error
message using version read from registry into a property!!

Yes, we should Windows Installer rules and standards to avoid additional

We differentiate our products patches with 3 version fields.
