Build automation using TFS with InstallShield 2011


  • We have a TFS build which outputs 2 exe's for 2 different solutions. How do I now integrate my build with InstallShield to use these exe's of both the solutions in my installer.

  • hello,

    InstallShield is intergrated with VS and MS build,

    1. Add new project [installShield] in your solution.

    2. Add the output [exe] to setup project [try to build it localy to ensure the msi contain the right exe].

    3. In ms build script packge the output msi from setup project.

  • Thanks Ayman. Instead I made changes to my build process template by adding an Invoke Process to call my .ism file. So far it works fine.
