How to create .msi using installshield 2013 from a existing .ism file.

Hi,

I have a .ism file created already using installshield 2012 version. I am trying to use the same .ism file in installshield 2013 premier trial version. I could generate .exe not the .msi file while clicking "Buils MSI" option. What settings is required in installshield to get .msi file instead of .exe file?

Hi Abhay,

You can use command line to build msi package.
Use below command:

IsCmdBld.exe -p "" -e N
