Hello, I 'm not sure if this is the correct way to post a question but here it is.
I have a simple installer, divided into 2 sections:
1. Bundle: Installs prerequisites and then runs an .msi
2. A .msi that installs application (copies files)
This set up works fine if I install on a new system, runs smooth and registers the application perfectly, the question I have is:
What is the right way to approach an update, what I need to do is the following:
1. Upgrade the application to a new version (I think I got that)
2. In the .msi if a previous version is found, leave one of the previously installed files (a database file) The problem is that when I run the installer (with new version number) DELETES all the previously copied files.
How can I prevent this file from being deleted during Upgrade?
Any help is appreciated.
