2. Oh sorry, misread. Correct, that’s not possible. Burn can do this with related bundles (add-ons and patches).

What’s your use case for #2? Just curious.

Thank you for the response!
1. OK, thanks
2. From what I read, the upgrade element of msi A can uninstall other msi (B) during A's installation. I want to uninstall B in the process of uninstalling A.
If that's possible then I missed how an upgrade element can accomplish this, can you please explain?

Thanks again
