COMPANY_AUTO_UNINSTALL_VIA_UPGRADE_TABLE

Please see the "options for commands" section of this manual for general information about the use of macros for configuration.

This macro is set to "Y" by default and causes the previous version of a product to be removed when installing the new one.

Apparently this is "bad" when trying to create a patch and you may not want this behaviour for other reasons, set it to "N" to disable automatic additions to the "Upgrade" table.
