When using the update tool to install a new update, does it run through the previous versions full uninstall steps before running through the new versions full install steps?
Specifically, I have a binary that I need to update that is run as a service. I install the service with the first installer one time (and have rule to make sure subsequent installers don't try to create it). I don't have any service commands (stop/restart etc) as part of the installer. I notice that after update, the new binary is in the installation folder but the old one is still running under the service until I manually restart the service at which point, the new binary is running. Do I need to add some steps to the installer (not updater) to perform this service restart or is there something to add to the update tool that will handle that?
