To install the updated web setup package on the same machine without removing the existing one, we should change the “Version” property of the updated web setup project.
1. Click the web setup project in "Solution Explorer".
2. Change the Version property in the “Properties” panel.
3. Rebuild the web setup project.
For more information, please refer to the following link:

Hi Benson Yu,
Thanks for the reply. I need to set one more property to get this done. The property is "RemovePreviousVersions". By default this will be
False. We need to set it as True to get things done.
Thanks again for your reply.
