[wix-users] Bundle is uninstalling a component I commented out

I have a bundle installer that pulls in a couple of MSIs from a suite of tools into a single installer. One of the tools was having a problem so I pulled it out by commenting out the associated <MsiPackage ... /> expecting the existing version of the tool on the machine to be retained as I upgraded (not install the new one with a bug).
However, when I ran the bundle installer, it uninstalled the tool that I commented out.

Is there a way I can retain the old version of a tool (not uninstall it) when upgrading via the installer?  Until I figure out the problem in that tool.
