I have an .Net 4.0 solution, and i use Visual Studio 2010.
in that soulution there is an startup project. I deploy the Project with the Webdeployment method, onto the IIS, the client can then go to the publish.html of the corresponding website, and install the application.
My problem starts when i try to release two different versions of that prooduct and try to install both on the same machine, then the installer thinks that the application is already installed. (after i install the first version of the product, the installer then complains that there already is an app with this name but i changed the product name)
How can i publish two different versions of my project, on two seperate websites? and have them install on the same machine at the same time?

I have found the solution for this problem, as the commenter Franck pointed out, there has to be some sort of distinction between those apps.
So i made just different keys for the different Variations i wanted to deploy:
Rightclick on the Startup project -> Properties -> Tab: Signning-> here one can create certificates for as many Variatons as one pleases, be sure to save the different certificates for later deployments!
when deploying a certain variation i then simply swap the file, and then msdeploy "thinks" it manages different apps.
