Well, the installer itself should provide the function for removal/uninstall. If the installer doesn't find an existing installation it should provide Install operation only. If it finds an existing installationen, it should provide uninstall operation. If it finds an outdated installation it should provide Update operation. I know Maintenance tool does this, however I would like to avoid the installation of additional maintenance tool. I would prefer the old- school way... implementing the maintenance and deplayoment features in the installer and the application. > In regards to 4, that is possible with the Installer Framework, but I > remember this to be an undocumented feature.

So the Maintenance tool would take the application from the local disk? Interesting idea. But how to put the application to the disk after installer has been started? Also the maintenance tool would still be installed (but with a useless update function) wouldn't it? > Rejecting to install into an existing directory is a default setting, > I do not fully remember whether there is an option to disable that. What a pitty. Anyway, how can an offline update work without that feature? -- Regards, Bernhard
