InstallShield LE 2015 not working on VS2015 Community Edition

Hi,

Just installed latest version of InstallShield LE 2015. When I opened my old project in VS2013, it recognized the new version and offered me to upgrade. But when I open this project in VS2015, the project is incompatible. Also I do not see InstallShield project under Setup and Deploy under Add new project. It looks like InstallShield was not integrated to VS2015. I have tried reinstalling it, did not help.

Anyone, please advise.

Thank you in advance.

InstallShield 2015 Limited Edition does not support Visual Studio Community 2015. Please check out the InstallShield Limited Edition for Visual Studio - Registration page for the supported versions and editions of Visual Studio.

Hello,

according to Microsoft, "InstallShield Limited Edition is free for users of all Visual Studio editions except the Express edi...". This would mean that it ISLE should be available in VS 2015 Community (as Community edition is not the same as Express editions) - so, which information is correct?

Thank you!

It is very upsetting that Flexera chooses not to support VS2015 Community edition, while (ostensibly) supporting VS2015 Professional, since Community and Professional are equivalent except for access to MSDN. Note that ISLE2015 actually does install in VS2013 Community, and I think it is Microsoft's expectation that ISLE2015 would support VS2015 Community. Now I am forced to develop a new installation package for my one application when I upgraded from VS2013 to VS2015.

Why does InstallShield 2015 Limited Edition support Visual Studio 2013 Community but not Visual Studio 2015 Community? ISLE 2015 installs just fine in VS2013 Community.
