REINSTALLMODE

The "REINSTALLMODE" property is a standard windows installer one.

The "COMPANY.MMH" header file contains this code:

;----------------------------------------------------------------------------
;--- Default to overwriting (file from package ALWAYS correct) --------------
;----------------------------------------------------------------------------
#define? COMPANY_REINSTALLMODE      amus      ;;Normal MSI default is "omus"
#if    ['<$COMPANY_REINSTALLMODE>' <> '']
   ;--- User wants or allows this change (value wasn't blanked) -------------
   <$Property "REINSTALLMODE"   Value=^<$COMPANY_REINSTALLMODE>^>
#endif
