First, make sure the UpgradeCodes are the same?

Subject: [wix-users] MSI MajorUpgrade is not detecting old version

 Hi Folks,

I am at my wits end. I am by no means experienced in MSI package creation but I have been successful using the MSI creation tools with VS2015. I create an MSI for a logging browser tool which is used by my company internally.

I am now in the process of switching to WiX and have created a wixproj and wxs file. I am able to create an MSI using these and it seems to install and work.

The problem is that if I installed using the old MSI and now want to install using the new MSI, it doesn't to an uninstall first and simply installs right over the old.

The old version is 0.2.57 and the new version is 0.3.0.

I'm linking some stuff including the wix files and the installer logs. I'm hoping one of you experienced people can spot what I am doing wrong.
