    How Install/Uninstall/Upgrade Works on Symbian 9

    Anybody know if Install/Uninstall/Upgrade if an embedded sis file is installed before anything else or after?

    I moved an uninstall (Run ON Remove) EXE to an embedded sis and it will now not let me upgrade my application by simply installing the sis on top of the old version.

    Any Ideas?

    Working as designed. You can only upgrade packages and the contents of each package must be unique. You are creating a paradox called eclipsing.

    I recommend in the upgrade you remove the existing exe in the one sis file and put a renamed exe in the embedded sis file (renamed will include, in addition to a new name, a new UID as well)
