Need to know how to install a 2nd app



We have created a setup for 4 of our applications. Each of 4 apps all use
the same DLLs, OCXs, etc...the only difference is help files and exes.
Product1.exe, Product2.exe, Product3.exe, Product4.exe.

After installing the 1st app, upon launching setup again, the
Modify/Repair/Remove dialog will appear...we have added an 'Install
different application' radiobutton to this that one of the other
3 apps can be installed (different Reg, different directory for some, but
all the shared DLLs/OCXs, etc... all live within the same directory).

When I run the setup a 2nd time, the 2nd app won't install...because Windows
Installer thinks that it exists already. How do I tell Windows Installer

The ProductCode and PackageCode Guids are what identify the product on the
system. You need to change ProductCode so that Windows sees your new setup
as a new product. How to change the PackageCode depends on what you're using
to build your MSI file.
