There is an apply button for this.  Property sheets are supposed to
work this way - changes don't get entered until you confirm them.

That looks like an installshield problem.  I'll look at it - I can't
control the look of the installation (it's predefined) but there might
be a way of making it behave properly.

It should upgrade automatically, but again that's installshield - I'm
far from an expert in how to use it.
