VB6 COM MSI Package

I'm trying to figure out how to build an MSI installer to install a server application. I have an existing MSI  that I've exported from another server. tThe problem is that I need to install with a different GUID so I can have two different client versions running on the same workstation. This is a very old app and I have no idea how the original MSI was created. I broke compatibility and recompiled the DLL and recompiled, thinking this would create a different GUID but I have no way to install it on the new server.
Any help will be very appreciated, as time is of the essence.

No longer in VB6 for a long time now. but I was using Inno Setup instead of the MSI installer available in old version of Visual Studio.

you may start building your installer using a newer installer packager?

you can try that to see if Inno Setup creating a new GUID for you. if not wrong, you may specific that too.
