Generating MSI files with IS Limited Edition

Hi,

I've written an Outlook Plugin with VS 2012 and have to deploy it as an msi package. I'm using the Limited Edition that comes with Visual Studio 2012 which generates a setup.exe file by default.
Is there a way to generate an msi installer instead? I just haven't found the switch yet...

Thanks a lot,
Alex

Hello,

Have you registered and activated ISLE? Once done, you should be able to find both .msi and .exe in the release folder after building the project.

Hi Swetha,

thanks for your answer!
Yes, I have activated ISLE. I assume that this includes the registration as well, doesn't it? At least I don't get any messages about a trial period as described in the help file.
Still, only a setup.exe file is generated. I had the suspicion, that it might have something to do with the project type being an office addin, and created a setup for a simple windows forms project with the same result.
Any other guesses what it might be?

Thanks,
Alex
