I am running VS. 2003  on XP

I am getting an error, "another version is installed and wont continue".  I have tried several things and it wont uninstall it.


I have the assembly set to <Assembly: AssemblyVersion("1.0.15.*")>

I have the Version under explorer set to 1.0.15
Remove Previous Version set to yes
Search path is there

No matter what I do when i run the new build .msi I get that error, I tis not uninstalling the provious version.

Thank You Experts,

The problem is that since the version is 1.0.15.* it would have created multiple versions of the assembly like

1.0.15.1
1.0.15.2

So the best way to uninstall is to search in your application folder and even in the global assembly cache for the multiple versions and remove them manually.

So when a application is being packaged the assembly version should be perfect like 1.0.15.1. Then after deployment always only one version of the assembly will exist
