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 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.).
