Don't install chained MSI's if that version is already installed

Advanced installer noob here so apologies if this is an easy one!

I have an issue with our installer right now, where whenever its run, even if the MSI packages have already been installed because they havent changed from the last installer we made, it still runs the MSI packages. Is there an easy way, I assume via the conditions of the chained MSI's to set it so that if that version of the MSI is installed to not run it? We create a lot of installers and when we send the app to beta testers we don't want them to have to use command line every time to skip driver install.

any help would be appreciated!

Hello and welcome to our forums,

If you did not change the version and ProductCode, then the MSI should enter Maintenance Mode automatically.

Product Identification (ProductCode and UpgradeCode)
