Installer needs new package code?

When I install ADX for IE, I get

The following properties have been set:
Property: [AdminUser] = true {boolean}
Property: [ProcessorArchitecture] = AMD64 {string}
Property: [VersionNT] = 6.1.0 {version}
Launching Application.
Using MsiInstallProduct with package path 'E:InstallAddinExpressIEdxienet-v604-b379-vs-pre.msi' and command line ''
MsiInstallProduct returned '1638'

according to MS this means you need to build it with a new package code.

Or did I miss something?

I turns out that it was the package code, I had an old version of ADX for IE, but as the package code was the same it didn't say "A version of the program is already installed".

It would probably be a good idea to upd ate the package code at each release and set "remove previous versions"?

(In the se tup, increment the release number and answer "yes" to the "do you want to create a new upgrade code?")
