You are not removing the previous application that is why you get 2 icons.

RE: Two Icon Appears for One Application in Control panel.

I too end up with 2 icons on the Pocket PC desktop after an install.  When I re-install over the top, I end up with another icon.  Each has a (n) subscript added to the application... as in the n-th copy.

I'm a real rookie.  Can anyone point me in the right direction for writing my installer properly?

Also, when I install, I point to the fact that I want it inn the start menu, and it doesn't show up there.  It does on PPC 2002 devices, but not 2003 devices.

Any help?

RE: Two Icon Appears for One Application in Control panel.

You probably have captured uninstall info in the registry under HKLM\Software\YourSoftware|Uninstall or something like that. To make sure that this is the issue, go to the Add/Remove Programs section of the Installation expert and check the "Do not display in Add/Remove Progs" radio button. Compile and install. If you see anything in Add/Remove progs, it means u have unwanted entries in your registry. Go hunting, take them out, then when you have cleaned it all out, recheck the "display in Add/Remove" radio button.
