Visual Studio 2013 and Installshield RRS feed

  • Question

  • Years ago I created a windows form project which eventually moved to Visual Studio 2013.  Back then VS2013 had a free version of Installshield that one could use to ease deployment.

    Recently I updated the project to use a newer .net version so that someone installing it didn't have to find the older version of .net.

    I realized that since I had reinstalled VS2013 on a newly imaged computer that now I am unable to add installshield.  Or best I can comprehend from the documentation I would minimally need to pay $800 for the lowest version of installshield to use.

    Is there another tool available or suggested for people who are not selling software commercially and to whom it is impractical to manually install a program to the half dozen people who might be using it?  I talking about simple installs that work in the same way as the original installshield kit.

    I know that there is a "demo" license you can get for a month but I really don't feel like worrying whether the created kit will also stop working in 30 days.

    Thanks for any suggestions you might provide,

    Mike

  • Rom225,

    No problem, we get a fair number of mis-directed posts and I view our "job" as helping users find the best forum for their question/issue.
