something like this?
[UninstallDelete]
Type: files; Name: "path to file\filename.extension";
Type: files; Name: "path to file\*"; // all files

Open in new window

I want to do it doing an install.  I've had to change the name of a file.  In my inno setup file I am going to add the new file, but I also need to delete the old file.

Use [InstallDelete].  It is the same format as [UninstallDelete].
