    InstallShield Does Not Appear in Windows Start Menu After Installation

    I am running Windows 7. After installing InstallShield Spring 2012 StandAloneBuild, InstallShield does not appear under "All Programs" on the Start Menu. Control Panel shows "InstallShield 2012 Spring Standalone Build" under "Programs and Features" as being installed, but I don't find an executable to launch it under C:\Program Files (x86)\InstallShield\2012Spring SAB. I'd appreciate any help anyone can give me. Thanks in advance.

    DCJ042,
    The standalone build does not have a UI framework to 'launch'. It is a command line interface and API interface for interacting with setup project files. It is designed for use with build machines principally but I can see some use case for it within a development environment.
    Look under Program Files\InstallShield, or Program Files (x86)\InstallShield if you are on Windows 7 x64.

    Hopefully this helps.
