[wix-users] Bundle Rollback with Major Upgrade of packages

I don't remember why there is a difference between Major and Minor upgrade rollback behavior in Bundles.

Hi Rob,

Thank you for your answer. From my experience, I agree that multi-package MSI transactions do not provide a good solution either.

In my opinion, repair of the old bundle cannot be more than a workaround - the user has to trigger it once he has detected that the state of the products is worse than before and something is really missing.

Thus I still cannot understand why Burn treats major-upgraded packages in a different way than minor-upgraded ones when it comes to a bundle rollback.

Best regards
