  • Hi MMSiddiq,

    I'm afraid that the WIX is not supported in the MSDN Forum since this is a third party product. I suggest you create a new thread in the WIX Forum where you can get help.

    Sorry for any inconvenience this may cause.

    Best Regards,

  • Windows Installer rules: a per user install won't upgrade a per system install, and vice versa.  Just the way it works.
