  • Hi,

    According to docs: it said"This extension provides the same functionality that currently exists in Visual Studio 2015 for Visual Studio Installer projects.

    What features are missing in new setup project in Visual Studio 2017 ?

    Since this forum is senseless as it is not connected to the developers. If that is the case , I suggest you try to submit your suggestions in following Visual Studio UserVoice site.

  • I assume you mean these

    https://marketplace.visualstudio.com/items?itemName=VisualStudioProductTeam.MicrosoftVisualStudio2015InstallerProjects

    https://marketplace.visualstudio.com/items?itemName=VisualStudioProductTeam.MicrosoftVisualStudio2017InstallerProjects

    And if so, that's what's offered, for more you'll need to figure out what you need and look for free ones or paid ones.
