x/build/cmd/release: Cannot upgrade to go 1.5 directly through MSI package #12213
I installed go 1.4.2 first.
It shows an error message:
I expect it automatically upgrades previous version, but it does not.
May be try to study from other projects
See this from #11740 (comment)
You will need a windows computer with all bits installed.
golang.org/x/build/env/windows/README describes the way Go builders are configured. You would only need appropriate bits of software installed - you can use "winstrap" program as described in README.
I have it working but the solution by default removes the old version before installing a newer version. Is that desired behavior?
It's possible to prompt the user that the installer will remove the old install but I want to double check before I get it ready for code review.
