That's expected behaviour.
Before attempting to execute any "<install ...>" command, WPKG goes
through the "<check ...>" conditions.
In this case, it sees "PDFCreator" in Software Add/Remove, and correctly
assumes that PDFCreator is installed - and thus, doesn't execute any
"<install ...>" commands.
I guess you didn't install 0.8.0.1 with WPKG?
So, for you, just increasing the revision by one in the XML file should
trigger the upgrade.
And, you can add more checks (for file size etc.).
