I'd like to begin implementing the use of DIM's for all of our developers.

1. Is it possible to create and add a DIM to existing VB 6.0 and/or VB.NET 2005 solutions and projects?

Very cool innovation!

Thanks in advance - John

I believe InstallShield Collaboration requires Visual Studio .NET or higher, so it cannot be used as part of a VS 6.0 project. However in case I misunderstood your question, a VS.NET (or VS2005, etc.) hosted DIM project can refer to a VB6 file just fine. The DIM project can be added to or created in an existing VS.NET or higher solution. The saved DIM can be consumed in any scenario you can use a capable version of InstallShield.

Does that answer your question?
