MSI is wierd. It's supposed overwrite some files, ignore others and downgrade others depending on the state of its internal database. Unfortunately the documentation is so cryptic I haven't been able to work out what circumstances it does this... I've managed to make it ignore a file (it refused to upgrade/downgrade a DLL because its timestamp had changed, and I had to physically delete it to make it install a new one). AFAIK there's no flag to always overwrite.. it just does it anyway. Tony
