I have InstallShield 2016 and when I want to add a Powershell-script as Custom Action I dont get this choice. Why is that?
Is "New Powershell" only in Enterprise-version of AdminStudio? I have Adminstudio 2016 Pro...

It's funny that they put the word "New" in front of each Custom Action type in the list. I think they could remove New from every entry and not lose any meaning. Oh well.

I checked here in my InstallShield Premier 2013, 2014, 2015 and 2016 and do see the PowerShell choice on all of those 4 versions. Is there something different about the InstallShield 2016 in AdminStudio?

I found the solution. When I edited the MSI directly I couldnt add "New Powershell". When I opened the .ism-projectfile I was able to add "New Powershell".
Strange...but guess this is "just how it is".

Something to documentate..
