Hi,

I've just started using installshield 11 as my company has decided that a professional install is the way forward!

Basically I need to check for running programs, install vb6 exes (moving to .net in the near future), get logon details for multiple SQL servers, generate registry keys and odbc connections and then run SQL scripts against existing databases based upon the logon details (and conditions) gathered.

Basically I need to know which approach to take Installscript or MSI?

I believe either project type will do what you want. For general differences between the types, perhaps see the InstallShield Help Library topic Getting Started > Working with Projects > Determining Which Installation Project Is Right for You...
