Cannot expand Installshield project in Visual Studio

I'm having an annoying issue in Visual Studio: it seems that it is not possible to expand the InstallShield project (still using trial version) at random times. The resolution is to restart the solution, and sometimes I can expand the project and work on it, sometimes it stays collapsed. However currently it seems even that doesn't help, so the project becomes unusable. Is this a known issue? :confused:

Could you kindly perform a repair as we don't encounter this Issue from our end.

Could you also let me know if you have received registration keys with which you can activate InstallShieldLE

Hi, this problem occurred with Installshield Express, not LE.

Yesterday I uninstalled it, and reinstalled it (and also applied the hotfix).
I recreated the setup project and now it works again.
I had other problems though:
- the ProjectAssistant values sometimes were not synchronized with the values in the individual sections. After restart, it was ok.
- In the dialog section, at Setup Complete Success, I put Show Launch program to yes but when I browsed for the program file, it wasn't there (although I added files in a previous step). After a restart, it was visible and I could select the exe.
- at a certain time in shortcuts/folders section, in programs menu, I had my custom added folder twice, although I only added it once. Somehow it got duplicated? Anyway, I could delete it.

I'm about to buy the product, I just hope it gets more stable.
