For Example : Bundle A contains three msi packages (A 1.0, B 1.0, C 1.0).
Created a Bundle and installed the bundle. We set Visible attribute of
MsiPackage element to "Yes". So that the users can upgrade the individual
components from ControlPanel.

So now in ControlPanel, the user can see the following 4 entries

Bundle A
A 1.0
B 1.0
C 1.0

Problem : If the user tries to upgrade only B to 2.0 without using Burn.
Upgrading individual msi from version 1.0 to 2.0. Control Panel is creating
two entries of B (1.0 and 2.0) which is not correct.

It should identify that B 1.0 is already available which was installed
using Burn and it should upgrade to 2.0

We have a requirement to display the entries in Control Panel, so that the
users will have the flexibility to upgrade individual items or whole
bundle. But it is creating multiple entries in Control Panel.

When we install individual components and upgrade it independently, it is
working, but when we install using burn and upgrade individual components,
it is not working.

Please share thoughts on this
