Problem with the installation of my pgm.

I have this problem, when i install my pgm. and if the file that i install is more recent than the system's file.

I have this message for example with a .rpt's file(CrystalReport):

The file that you're copying IS LESS  RECENT than that one on your system. You should to keep the existant'sfile.

File'sName : C:\programfiles......
Description : "
Your version : "
Do you want to keep this file?

I use VB6.0 SP3.
I make .cab for the installtion.

Setup tell the file is LESS RECENT, then in reality it is more RECENT. This message should not appear.

Too, it doesn't write the description and the version.
Someone have an idea.
P.S. I have French's VB.

It's write this, in this is there something to fix.

Non-Versioned version conflict message displays useless information (SP2 & SP3)
 Before a file that has no version overwrites an existing file with the same name, the setup displays a useless message that lists the description and version number that by definition are blank. It should, instead list file date and size of new and old file so the user can make an educated decision.

I fix the problem in the CopySection, but it seems i remove an Endif can you tell me where to put it:
     Dim sFileDate2 As Date

        sFileDate2 = FileDateTime(sFile.strDestDir & sFile.strDestName)
       
        If DateDiff("s", StartDate, sFileDate2) > 0 Then


        If sFileDate = sCurDate Then
            lTime = GetFileTime(sFile.varDate)
            hFile = CreateFile(sFile.strDestDir & sFile.strDestName, GENERIC_WRITE Or GENERIC_READ, 0, 0, OPEN_EXISTING, FILE_ATTRIBUTE_NORMAL, 0)
            SetFileTime hFile, lTime, lTime, lTime
            DoEvents
            CloseHandle hFile
        Else
            '
            'Give a chance for the 'Cancel' button command to be processed if it was pressed
            '
            DoEvents
        End If
        'Delete the files after copy...
        SetAttr gsTEMPDIR & sFile.strDestName, vbNormal
        Kill gsTEMPDIR & sFile.strDestName
        intIdx = intIdx + 1
    Loop

    Err.Clear
End Sub

Another question, do you know why SP3 remove my name for my VB's license and the serial's number?

come on, didn't you save the original file somewhere before messing with it?
You do not need to copy the setup.exe because of the change you made to the bas file.
Sorry I don't know about the name and serial number problem. Try msdn knowledge base. I find most problems get answered there eventually. Good Luck!
