InstallShield 2012 SPR LimitedEdition crashes VS2012 when compiling imported .vdproj

We have a VS MSI setup defined in VS 2010. Because we want to switch to VS2012 we imported the setup vdproj file in the InstallShield that can be downloaded as InstallShield2012SPRLimitedEdition.exe.

When compiling the Installshield project VS 2012 crashes and restarts. This keeps on happening so we can not make a working setup in VS 2012. When trying to fix the installshield problem VS2012 crashes multiple times.

When I press ctrl C during build I can terminate the setup build before the crash occurs. Then we have a -6213 Internal build error and multiple messages in the form of Warning 1 -6248: Could not find dependent file Telerik.Windows.Controls.Charting.dll, or one of its dependencies of component C__1694758B7142456F9D27C1E8EAE43AA3 ISEXP : warning : -6248: Could not find dependent file Telerik.Windows.Controls.Charting.dll, or one of its dependencies of component C__1694758B7142456F9D27C1E8EAE43AA3. Because our project is compiling and running fine it's installshield that does not do a proper scan of dependencies. This scan is disabled in the Light version. Manually correcting the problem is very hard because I do not have a clue what is component C__1694758B7142456F9D27C1E8EAE43AA3, why not give a human readable name instead of this code?

I found a solution for the C__1694758B7142456F9D27C1E8EAE43AA3 filenames, open the .isl file in an editir, look for the code and you will find the sourcefilename of te target involved. Using this method I could resolve the -6248 warnings.
The crashes continue however.

The log of Installshield is posted here:

*** Crash VS 2012 ****

Sometimes when building the installshield project I get a messagebox
devenv.exe The instruction 0x652b338a referenced memory at 0x00000000. The memory could not be written.

Any help to prevent these crashes is welcome.

Re: InstallShield 2012 SPR LimitedEdition crashes VS2012 when compiling imported .vdproj

can you try repairing your ISLE and check for behavior? if this does not help, you can also uninstalling it completely and then reinstalling it.
