When running the install program, I get a lot of dialog boxes popping up asking me if I want to keep the new file already on the computer.  Is there some way to turn this off, and by default keep all the latest files?

The sample code here is a modified version of VB6 Setup1 Project (Package and Deployment Wizard).

I didn't see anything that told me how to silence the dialog windows.  If there is something there, can you please explain?

In ModInstall, Function SourceFileIsNewer, Line:
If sFile.varDate > datDest Then  '--changed < to > (see below)
    '---------change: < to > above. this sub checks whether source (installing)
    '-- file is newer than current file on machine.
    '-- if it can't find versions it compares dates,
    '-- but the date check was backwards.
