If you use late scheduling of RemoveExistingProducts you also need consistent guids.

gg was intended for use in creating setup code that would then be manually maintained. ag was introduced to facilitate correct use of build-time harvesting.

Subject: [wix-users] heat ag vs gg

Can somebody tell me in which cases I need to use ag and in which cases
I need to use gg as I can't tell from the documentation (unless I've
missed something in the docs).

My own interpretation is that ag is only required for minor upgrades to
keep GUIDs consistent. And if I'm only doing major upgrades gg is fine.
