Error extracting ISBEW64.exe from ISRegSvr.dll

I have Visual Studio 2015 and used the Setup and Deployment project from the Other Project Types. That led me to download InstallShield Limited Edition Project. So I have a setup created for a simple COM object and it is failing. I found this error in the log file:

Re: Error extracting ISBEW64.exe from ISRegSvr.dll

I noticed an output message during the build saying ISX_DEFAULTCOMPONENT1 was set to deploy to the 64 bit program folder but it was marked as a 32 bit component. I guess being the Express edition means I cannot change it via the IDE as I could not find it. But I found I could open the ISL file and modify it directly by changing the value that followed INSTALLDIR from a "2" to a "256". That worked. See the code below. I found I also had to change it for the entry added for my DLL (also in the code below).
