I can’t seem to figure out something that should be simple, as it was in a VS Installer Project.

I need to get the setup to create a file extension association with a list of different menu items to be placed under a file extension.

Example, you right click on a file with the extension of .ssf and windows gives you four options for that file.
Build Report A
Build Report B
Build Report C
Build Report D

I believe windows calls these different command verbs, how do I do this within InstallShield?

Please see the following documentation:

Does that help you to accomplish what you are looking to do?

InstallShield Express edition only supports the Open verb. If you want to add custom verbs, you may want to consider upgrading to InstallShield Pro or Premier edition.
