Is this an MSI install?
If so, this is expected behaviour. If the key path already exists then there is no point in overwriting it. To overcome this behaviour, when you run the MSI as a "second build" then add the properties: REINSTALL=ALL REINSTALLMODE=amus to the msiexec installation command line.
Do not use these properties for a first build.
Next time write a major upgrade and you don't have to mess with all this.
