Installing version 2 on top of version 1

How do I get a newer version of a programme to install over an older version? I'm getting two of 'em standing next to each other. I don't want the first deleted, because the database must continue to live.

Should it seek & destroy the older one or is the secret in the name/cid/dbname...?

Just make the new version have the same CID as the old one. The old databases will not get deleted when the new one is installed. Only your app's .prc file will get replaced.
