Hi Installshield Engineers,

Can you explain the difference between
A - "InstallShield X Professional Upgrade from Developer, DevStudio or Professional" - $599 option.
B - "Upgrade to the InstallShield X Professional + Visual Studio.NET Professional* bundle from Developer, DevStudio or Professional" - $1199 option.

My counterpart is going to upgrade their developer 8 to installshield X. Apparently Option B is 600 higher than the option A. He wants to know the difference?

Many thanks in advance.

The difference is apparently that (B) ships with a copy of Microsoft Visual Studio.NET, so if you intend to develop your application with VS.NET and don't already have a copy, that option would be more appropriate... Otherwise, (A) gives you the updated InstallShield X system, described here: http://www.installshield.com/products/x/.
