Installer problem

We are using WiX to create an installer for our project which has some common assemblies that are installed in the GAC. When I created the installer-project I added the feature to allow it to upgrade from previous versions. Unfortunately this seems like there are some glitches either in my installer-project or in MSI so sometimes assemblies are not uninstalled or installed at all.

When I think about it it could be because of file version comparison. Some assemblies do have the file version set to I have to check this and come back with more info.

Ooohh, they're playing Mötley Crüe's You're All I Need on P3 Rockster right now! I just wish that they could play Helter Skelter or Too Fast For Love. What the heck, they could play anything from Too Fast For Love or Shout At The Devil and I would be really happy!



I solved the issue by making sure that the assembly now is properly versioned as the rest of the assemblies by using AssemblyInfoTask.
