Can ISM's produced with 8.5 be opened with 8?

Yes. Basically, the question is more regarding interoperability between InstallShield 12 project files and InstallShield 2008 project files.

It should work in the same fashion as any previous release--when you open it with the newer version, it creates a backup with the schema designation as the extension (*.755 for IS12, IIRC), and then it upgrades the new copy that maintains the *.ism extension.

I've upgraded plenty of projects this way, myself.

Cheers for the info!
