View Full Version : Migrate from IS 11 to IS 2008

My company wants to acquire IS 2008 instead of the IS 11 we are using.

Do you know if there are problems with migrating MSI Basic projects and Install Scipt projects from 11 to 2008 ?

In InstallShield 12, a number of improvements were made to the InstallScript engine architecture. One result of this is that if you use InstallScript custom actions in your Basic MSI projects, you may need to make some manual changes when you upgrade your projects. For more details about this, plus other changes, please see the following help topics:

Upgrading Projects from InstallShield 12 or Earlier (http://helpnet.macrovision.com/Robo/BIN/Robo.dll?tpc=/robo/projects/installshield14helplib/UpgrdngToIS2008.htm)
Upgrading Projects from InstallShield 11.5 or Earlier (http://helpnet.macrovision.com/Robo/BIN/Robo.dll?tpc=/robo/projects/installshield14helplib/ISMSIArchitecture.htm)

I hope that helps.
