When updating my IE add-in (from version 1.1.0 to 1.2.0) the existing version was not removed. I have created a setup project to create the .msi file and I have a Wix BootsTrapper project (WixStandardBootstrapperApplication) which calls that msi file using DownloadUrl specified in the MsiPackage. The bootstrapper project was added to reused an existing danish setup wizzard and to make the installation simple (just surf to the exe-file of the bootstrapper and run it.)

Hello,

Do you use the same upgrade id in the Upgrade section of both new and old setups?

Yes, the upgrade ID is the same for both versions.

Fixed! The msi-file was not updated. Fixed it by adding a project reference in the bootstrapper project to the setup project. Now it updates perfectly.
