    Repackager Error: The InstallShield build engine cannot be initialized

    Repackager Error: The InstallShield build engine cannot be initialized and thus, we cannot build MSI files. Please reinstall the product.

    I recently installed AdminStudio 2016 on Windows 10. Repackager not able to build msi and produces this error.

    Please advise.

    Thanks,

    From where are you trying to run InstallShield? I know you get this error when you try to run it on the same machine as you used repackager on.
    Best practise: make a virtual machine, make a shortcut to your host which have repackager installed...
