    Question Upgrading from Limited Edition to Express


    Is there a way to upgrade install shield projects created using VS2010 Install Shield limited edition to Install Shield 2014 Express edition projects?

    You can simply open your .isl file in the Express edition of InstallShield. Your project will be upgraded to a .ise project file automatically.

    Hope that helps.

    Upgrade Partially works

    Thank you for your post. I performed the suggested opening of the .isl file. An .ise file was created. The install information looked correct. However, when I open Visual Studio 2010 it fails to load the install shield portion of the project.

    I've attached a jpeg with the error message.

    I assume Visual Studio 2010 can't understand Install Shield Express 2016. Is there a way to have it recognize the upgraded Install Shield project?
