newbie question

hi all

here's my problem;

i've run InstallShield Repackager to create a new project, made a snapshot of my app installation, then clean the files and reg entries i don't want. so far, everything is fine.

but then, i need to run InstallShield developer to fine tune my msi file, but i'm not able to "build" it, the option is greyd out and not available.

so how can i go to the developer, change the required settings (like put msiexec 1.1 is the default engine) then save those settings and build or compile my msi file?

thank you all!

You should have at least the .ism already built for the option to be enabled.
like i said, i'm a newbie.

how can i do that?

thank you.
sorry about that last post, i should have check before replying.

yes, i can see a ism file already there, but i'm still unable to build from the developer tool.

1 Launch the Repackager IDE.
2 Open the .inc
3 Uncheck the 'Create a Windows Installer ....' option under the Repackaged Output node in the RHS view.
4 Click 'Build' to rebuild your ism.
5 The 'Edit InstallShield Developer Project' menu will become enable. Click the menu to launch Developer.
ok i got it now, thanks a lot|
