Hi @ishivamin ,


It looks like your Installshield integration with the Visual studio is not working\lost. Error message say, visual studio not able to find the application to open the .isporj file.

This kind of situation usually comes, if the visual studio installed\upgraded after Installshield installation.

1- Can you check whether installshield 2016 SP2 or higher version is installed in your machine  

2- Can you check whether you are able to see installshield project types in the Visual studio new project type dialog.

This can be resolved by repairing installshield from the Add and Remove programs, or the below command can be executed to register installshield with Visualstudio.

Close all running instance of Visual studio.

1- Open cmd in administrator mode

2- change directory to installshield system folder

cd "c:\Program Files (x86)\InstallShield\2018\System"   ( if you are installed IS2018, or change it appropriately )

3-  execute  TSConfig.exe /registervsip


 See, whether you are able to open the project in visual studio.
