Visual Basic Application Deployment

I need to update a visual basic application on some systems.  I have made the change to the application however, I am not sure about the deployment after I rebuild an application.  Will I need to uninstall the old visual basic application on the machines and install new setup files or is there a way to update the existing application with the new files without removing them?  

I'm using visual studio.net 2003.  I have created the setup files and installed the application.  However, when I go back, edit the application for new changes, rebuild it, and re install it, it says the application already exists.  

Thanks.

no, you should just be able to copy the new executable over the top of the old version.  There is no 'installation' in the sense that a VB6 application needed to be installed.
