    Evaluating InstallShield Express 2016 - Cannot find template in Visual Studio 2015

    I started using InstallShield LE through Visual Studio 2015 and came across a limitation in loading custom actions that are DLLs.

    So I am evaluating InstallShield Express 2016 since it should have that capability, but I don't know how to integrate it into Visual Studio.
    I still see InstallShield LE and there is only one template available for Setup and Deployment...the LE version.

    If I can integrate Express into Visual Studio, I should be able to sort out my needs from there.
    I am preferring an integrated solution for source control purposes.

    More of an Issue about upgrading to Express from LE in the VS2015 solution

    I found the InstallShield template in VS2015, but when trying to add it as a project, I get an error indicating that this project has been updated to a newer version of InstallShield.

    So my new question is, how do I sever the link to LE to allow me to use Express?

    Well, it looks like the problem solved itself. Restarting Visual Studio did not make a difference that day.

    However, a power cycle may have since after powering up my PC on Monday, I tried creating a new InstallShield project and it worked!
