Force uninstall before install

Post by stefanreich » Sat Aug 31, 2019 5:48 pm

Hi, I use InstallForge for my Java programs over at BotCompany.de.

It works fine, I even ship Java with my tools using InstallForge.

I have a question though: Right now the installer will happily overwrite an existing installation. Wouldn't it be cleaner to have the installer always do an uninstall first?

This could simply be an checkbox per project ("force uninstall before install").

What do you think?

Thanks,
Stefan
