Difference between InstallShield 2018 Lite and InstallShield 2018 EXpress

Hi,
What is the difference between InstallShield 2018 Lite and InstallShield 2018 Express? I am currently using InstallShield Limited edition for visual studio 2015. It looks like the free offering is no longer available for Visual Studio 2017

Thanks

Hi shikarishambu,

Main difference between InstallShield 2018 Express and InstallShield 2018 Lite is Visual Studio Integration with 2017.

InstallShield 2018 express has very limited features like only one project type but that is sufficient for creating well-authored-setup installer.For more information about features included in current InstallShield R2 release have a look:http://helpnet.flexerasoftware.com/isxhelp24/rn/ReleaseNotes.htm

InstallShield 2018 Lite is successor of InstallShield Limited Edition but differs in Visual Studio 2017 support,even this can be sufficient for authoring required user-definable installer


Hope it helps,
Thanks,
Jenifer

You say InstallShield 2018 Lite is successor of InstallShield Limited Edition. Does that mean it has all of the same features and capability?

Will it work with Visual Studio 2019?
