    Multiple Installation (vb6)

    Can anyone tell me why, each time I install my project, I get the following in the "Add or Remove Programs" dialog ?

    This happens with Windows XP and Win 98.

    Is there a way to stop this happening and only have one entry on each install ?

    Uninstall before installing. The list of installed programs is a somewhat stupid applet and gets confused.

    If you think that's bad, wait until you see how many IDs you've added to the Registry. You almost have to have a separate development machine so you can burn it down every 6 months and start fresh.
