My build server had InstallShield 2014 Professional SP1 along with Visual Studio 2013. When I open Visual Studio 2013 IDE and select "New Project", I do see "InstallShield Projects" in the available templates. I can also add an existing .ism file (created in InstallShield 2014 Professional SP1) to a Visual Studio 2013 IDE and build the solution successfully. I use "Primary_Output" of each Visual Studio projects from my solution to the Install Shield project.
Recently, my organization move to Visual Studio 2015 update 2 and have migrated all Visual Studio 2013 code to Visual Studio 2015. As a consequence, when I tries to follow same process as earlier, i.e. adding .ism file in Visual Studio 2015 update solution, but it does not allow me. It says "Unsupported project". I also do not see "InstallShield Projects" in Visual studio 2015 update 2 templates.
1. Can I use InstallShield 2014 .ism projects in Visual Studio 2015 Update 2?
2. If I can, what is required to accomplish this?
Please respond as this is critical for a planned release and I am currently stuck.
Thanks in advance.
