InstallShield 2018 Lite Installation Problem

I cannot install IntallShield 2018 Lite into Visual Studio Community 2018.
The install instructions in the email say to install as a Setup & Deployment Project under Other Project Types only Service and Deployment selection menu does not exist.
According to Flexara website Req page, I should be able to do this !

Whats' wrong ?

Hi ,

This is note from Flexera in visual studio marketplace which clearly states that InstallShield Lite for Visual Studio 2017 is not supported for Visual Studio Community Edition.

https://marketplace.visualstudio.com/items?itemName=Flexera-InstallShield-Lite.InstallShield2018Lite

"For over 25 years, InstallShield has been the gold standard for Windows software installations, used by virtually every major software company in the world. InstallShield Lite for Visual Studio 2017 provides a subset of the world-class InstallShield functionality. It includes significant functionality not available in Visual Studio Installer. InstallShield Lite for Visual Studio supports the following Visual Studio editions:

Professional
Enterprise
InstallShield Lite for Visual Studio 2017 is not supported for Visual Studio Community Edition"

Hope it helps,

No that condescending tone does not help much at all.

The path I was prompted through to download InstallShield did not show me that page at all so there's no way I could have read it.
Another page on the flexera website implied the opposite of that and that's the one I read after downloading and trying to install the
software.

Cannot Install InstallShield Lite 2018

Well,

I bought installed and licensed Visual Studio Professional 2017. I tried again to follow instructions sent in email ton Install InstalShield Lite 2018.
When I get to Step 3 there still is no "Setup and Deployment" Sub menu under the "Other Project Types" menu.
So I can install your product. Please let me know what the problem is.

Regards,
Chuck Middleton
