I'm using the VS 2008 installer software and it works fine, but I am noticing a small annoyance.  When my clients attempt to upgrade or update the software, they are asked to remove the old or current version before installing the new one.  It doesn't do that on my development machine.  Am I missing something?  I would like for the client just to run the update and the software removes itself and installs the update.
