About InstallShield Limited Edition in Visual Studio 2010

Answers

  • So can i use this to deploy my commercial products?

    Yes, the license is included in Visual Studio.

    any help regarding this?

    Not really. Flexera doesn't offer much information about this.

    Also what are the advantages comparing to Visual Studio click once deployment...?

    They use different technologies. InstallShield LE creates MSI packages, like the Visual Studio setup project. Perhaps this article will help:

    Can i configure database script installation to this project?

    No. If you need SQL scripts support you can either purchase a full InstallShield license or use another setup authoring tool which supports them.

  • No, InstallShield LE doesn't support custom dialogs and custom actions.

  • In your post you state InstallShield LE creates an MSI file.  Can you tell me how to make that work.  I can't find that setting.

    Thanks

    You need to look at InstallShield LE documentation if you can find some - Visual Studio doesn't include InstallShield docs, and this forum is for Visual Studio setup projects, not InstallShield ones.
