I have a VB.Net application that I am trying to build an installation package
via InstallShield Express 5.0.

I go through the new VB.NET Wizard in Install Sheidl and it collects my info and tells me that it is adding the install project to my solution but just opens the solution without adding any install project.

I also tried to manually add an InstallShield Installation project but cannot find a template from one when I create a new project.

I am running InstallShield Express 5.0 SP2, Visual Studio .Net 2003 (Dev Env
Version 7.1.3088 and Framework 1.1.4322)

Sounds like we did not get Express registered with VS studio during the installation. Here is how to manually do it.

1. Self Register the following DLLs:

IsExpPkg.dll
IsExpEdt.dll

they are located in the Express system folder:

C:\Program Files\InstallShield X Express\System

2. Next, run VS .NET with the following command line:

C:\Program Files\Microsoft Visual Studio .NET 2003\Common7\IDE\devenv.exe -setup

Then re-run the wizard.

Hope this helps.
