Please help me guys. Will be there any problem or It will be successfully override the previous version.

I think it will be fine, except it will bust your registry (if any saved credentials etc will be lost, they are tied to the devID).

Why don't you try and let us know your experience? This is something simple enough to do as a private channel, no publish review etc - just do it.

Thanks a lot.

Actually I have tested earlier. But still I am in doubt. Smiley Sad . And In app I am storing some data in registry.
I have one question. When the app is updated with the latest version , then according to you.the registry will be getting cleared.right ?

Maybe. That depends.
Registry is shared between multiple apps with the same devID.
All apps signed with devID=A can only see the registry (let's call it) "regA".
All apps signed with devID=B can only see registry "regB".
So when you deploy same app as devID=B, it cannot see regA.
RegA may or may not be cleared at that point, depending if there are other devID=A apps still installed. It's as if registries get garbage-collected - when last reference to them disappears, so do they.
