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?

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.
