    VB6 Application Setup

    For years I have been installing applications which say something like -

    "There is a newer version of this control installed - Keep ? YES NO

    It occurred to me that there must be a setting in the install script which defaults a YES everytime this situation arises (without having to keep clicking YES)

    Am I right ? (Or is there no way around this message)

    Never looked into it but the source for the setup is included with VB so it is possible to modify it to suit your needs. I have modifed the sections that read the ini file and create shortcuts but that is about as far as I have gone with it.

    Assuming you installed in the default location the source code would be located at
    C:\Program Files\Microsoft Visual Studio\VB98\Wizards\PDWizard\Setup1

    I always used InnoScrip and InnoSetup. A member over at VBF used to give i away (for donation) unitl he wrote it in .Net, and made it 1000% faster. Now, it's a few bucks. http://www.randem.com/randemsystems.html
