I have a shimmed outlook plugin that works fine, but does not register correctly using the generated setup msi in VS2005.

I have seen that this is likely due to when i altered version property, it asked me to update the productcode.

How do I update whatever refers to the original product code to fix this?

Many thanks

Hi Tim.

The Product Code is a unique identifier for an application.
Please don't change it at all. Now you should uninstall the previous version of the add-in and install a new one. Also you can set the RemovePreviousVersions property of the setup project to True. In this case the installer will ask you about the uninstallation of the add-in if it has already been intalled on the PC.
