Powershell community extentions MSI upgrade does not work

May 4, 2009 at 9:10 AM
a hello to the creator of the package powershell comunity extentions. (r keith hill)
you say that for some reason you don't understand the upgrade process doesn't work when you create the package with visual studio.
this is a real common error in MSI meaning that the upgradecode of the new version does not contain the value of the productcode of the old version.
did you check this? this setting will remove old versions first (it's a feature of MSI and has nothing to do with the application)
just read that you were having problems with this and thought this might help.
kind regards,
Dimitri

Keith: do you need help with an MSI installer? I've got some WiX skills...

This is fixed in daily bits.  Indeed the upgrade code got changed between 1.1.1 and 1.2.  I fixed it so the upgrade is the same between the two and set it to require the previous version to be uninstalled.
