To simplify the upgrade creation process, InstallShield offers you the ability to create automatic upgrades. An automatic upgrade is a special type of upgrade that you can create if you do not know which type of upgrade you should use or if you do not have a preference. With automatic upgrades, InstallShield determines which type of upgrade—major upgrade or minor upgrade—would be optimal based on comparisons between the earlier and later packages that you specify.
