Does anyone else have a problem with PackageForTheWeb 3.0 not recognizing
project files created by InstallShield Express 3.03?

PFTW does not show the right file extension for Express project files when
trying to import them! This doesn't make sense because I have been told they
are compatible.

(as an alternative do you know how to create a self-extracting executable
that actually ends in ".exe" using InstallShield Express 3.03? the older
versions worked easily but this new version only seems to create .msi files)

I tried to do the same and you cant import an InstallShield Express project,
because its looking for different file extensions.
I did then try and create a new PackageForTheWeb project, and you have to
fill in all the details and then just select the setup file created by
installsheild and it will create a cab file or a self extracting exe ( only
slightly smaller in size )
