Suppress "another version of this product is already installed": i.e. install in quite mode

jeff00seattle
Hi

I want to do a silent (quite) install of a product.

Install works great, but when I run the same MSI file again, then dialog message "another version of this product is already installed..."

I wish to either:
A. Suppress it, i.e. no message and do nothing
B. Reinstall quitely

I do not know how to do possible solution A.

For possible solution B., I tried adding the following:
For re-install, I tried adding the following:
    <Property Id='REINSTALLMODE' Value='amus'/>
    <Property Id='REINSTALL' Value='all'/>

But the linker issues these warnings:
warning LGHT1076 : ICE40: REINSTALLMODE is defined in the Property table. This may cause difficulties.
warning LGHT1076 : ICE87: The property 'REINSTALL' shouldn't be authored into the Property table. Doing so might cause the product to not be uninstalled correctly.

Pointers?
Thanks
Jeff in Seattle

Wilson, Phil-2
There is no "install again" because the product as defined by the ProductCode guid is already installed. So you probably need some kind of update where you've changed some files and want to install an updated version of the product. If you want to create a new MSI and have it act as if it's a new install as well as upgrade an existing installed one then look at the Upgrade element and major upgrades.

Thanks for the reply, but is there any way to declare with the product's *.wsx file to suppress the dialog "this product is already installed..." if it is already installed?
Thanks

That's not WiX, it's Windows telling you that for the reason I explained.

Why do people who can't read a single statement bother to answer useless stuff?
The guys says "when I run THE SAME MSI FILE AGAIN".

Answer : "when you've changed some files... updated version of the product... blah blah".

STUPID HE DID NOT CHANGE NOTHING HE WANTS TO INSTALL THE SAME MSI AGAIN!!!!
Maybe changing installation options, for example.
