Hi @lkbhaskar,

Thank you for your post.

The summary is that, yes, InstallShield 2019 supports Visual Studio 2019.

The explanation of how to confirm that information is below:

Here is a link to our Revenera InstallShield documentation:

I selected 2019 as the Product Version then clicked InstallShield 2019 Release Notes to jump to the InstallShield 2019 Release Notes available at this link:

I clicked the System Requirements link at the top of the web page.

I found these Visual Studio versions listed, meaning that InstallShield 2019 supports these specific Visual Studio versions:
