InstalledCheck without specifying propertyvalue?

Is it possible for the dotnetinstaller to check the verison of the embedded MSI, rather than checking the "propertyvalue" field?

... so a direct comparison between an embedded MSI ProductVersion and an installed MSI ProductVersion is possible?

It's not, that would be a feature request. Personally, I think it's a bad idea. That would require the MSI to be extracted first, opened as a database and the version fetched. In the download scenario that would need the MSI to be downloaded just to check whether it should or shouldn't be installed.

We generally substitute the version  in the propertyvalue field in our build process.

Fair point about the download scenario...

I'll go the patching route... thanks.
