Prevent maintenancetool in Qt installer to remove specific package in next updates

  • I developed a Qt application for windows. I want to add some files as a package in the specific version of the setup file(call A_Setup) for some users but not in the main setup file for all user(call B_Setup). Now the challenge is when users who installed A_Setup, update their application, maintenancetool.exe remove the new package because it's not in the main setup. Now the question is how to prevent maintenancetool.exe to remove the specific package and this package remained in next updates.
