Upgrade of solution with new feature

Jan 31, 2011 at 1:58 PM


I would like to upgrade with new features. But standard sharepoint upgrade do no install new feature nor copy new file.

I can do a repair but it does not register version number.

Any help appreciated.

My understanding is that an "Upgrade" of a Solution or Feature will only "upgrade" the exact same files that were in it during the initial installation. An "Upgrade" will not install new files added to a Feature. Typically either you customize and do some Feature chaining or create a new Feature and add it to your Solution. That new Feature would have your new files in it. ( I would say the latter is not really optimum and can get pretty unweildy.)

I think an Upgrade actually removes and reinstalls, so all new files should get installed?
