I am trying to ccreate a VB 6 Silent install application. I have been somewhat successful with some info on the net and following Microsoft's setup1 example. However I still have one problem left.

"The silent install is only interupted (that I could see) when the install encounters the "Setup is attempting to copy a file that is older than the one currently..." dialog. This interruption doesn't occur if the setup contains the latest versions of the files being installed. "

Is there a way to override this problem how do I set my application to override this.
