Up to now I have only needed ISX2008 for building VB6 projects, Today I tried my first Visual Studio 2008 project. I started ISX2008 and selected a Visual Basic.NET project. I selected the appropriate solution when requested by the wizard. When I clicked Finish ISX2008 said it was adding the setup project to my solution.

VS2008 then loaded. I can see no reference to a setup project in the solution explorer. Nor can I see any reference to ISX2008 projects when I select New Project in VS2008 (the help states it should be listed)

Any ideas?

XP SP2
Visual Studio 2008 Professional Edition
Installshield 2008 Express Edition

If you installed Visual Studio 2008 after installing InstallShield Express 2008, repairing or reinstalling InstallShield -might- do the trick. But I think Express 2008 predates VS 2008, and thus does not register support for it.
