Description cezariusz 2015-02-17 11:41:29 UTC
I created installer for a platform application via a suite project, then using the "Package as|Installers" feature.
Now, after I run the installer and installed my product, then run the installer again, the Wizard tells me that the product was already installed and I should first uninstall it.
It should provide an option to uninstall or update the existing version. At least something simple such as first uninstalling the previous installation and then proceeding with the actual installation process.

I should have changed the default value of issue type and set it as an enhancement. Please note that it's quite a popular demand, for example:
