Using the setup-and-deployment project in VS (2005), is there a way to
force binaries to install even if the version is older than the
previously-installed ones?

I am stuck with a situation where the 3rd-party newer binaries
actually have an older file version. I have my Setup Project set to
RemovePreviousInstallations, but it still doesn't work. The older
installation is removed, but the binaries are not installed at all.

On a fresh installation, it works fine.
