What are the steps involved in upgrading from IS 8 to IS 11 ?

You should be able to open the .ism project file from your Developer 8 project and go from there. The Getting Started section of the InstallShield Help Library has additional project-upgrading information.

Does the whole thing require any changes in the code ?

If you keep to the same project type (Basic MSI to Basic MSI, InstallScript MSI to InstallScript MSI, and so on), the upgrade from Developer 8 should be straightforward. When you open your old .ism, the InstallShield 11 environment should display any warnings related to the upgrade process; you might also need to fix up paths to merge modules or objects your project uses.
