    Post Unanswered: Avoid multiple registrations of a program

    Avoid multiple registrations of a program

    Hi. Can anyone tell me how I can avoid getting multiple registrations in "Controll panell" / "add or remove programs"/"currently installed programs"
    After reinstalling a own developed program (created with Developer Packaging Wizard) I get a new registration of the program. After re-installing the program several times this list gets irritating long.
    I also get the message "Version Conflict" for several OLB and DLL files I need in my program.
    ...and, the first installation show 105Mb the remaining one installed afterwards 2.7 Gb (yes Gb) Why ?


    Thanks for any help on this issue.

    Re: Avoid multiple registrations of a program

    When you re-install the app do you remove it first?

    If noty then try removing all of them and re-installing.

    Does removing remove them? (strange sentence)

    Post Yes but....

    Sure, no problem when I remove them first. But you know, it's easy to forget and what's more important: if I first remove them I need to make a complete new version of my application. (included access runtime, system files and so one) This result in longer installation time and bigger files (I'm sending updates trough the net)
