If I open my .ism file, go to Installation Designer and click on Update Service, I get this:

Happens every time with my .ism file. If I create a new (empty) project file, it doesn't.

P.S. It's nice that .ism files are now XML files, but adding some newlines & indentation would make them human-readable (not to mention human-repairable in the event of .ism corruption), which would be even better.

Uninstalled & reinstalled (& re-updated) InstallShield. Still crashes.

The .ism is a valid xml file (nice .xsl, by the way).
