InstallShield does not create an MSI file

I created a sample InstallScript project and added 3 files into the 'default component' and am trying to build it but I don't see the build output.

The build log:
---------------
Created release folders
InstallShield Script Compiler
Version 18.0.0.329
Copyright 1997-2011 Flexera Software, Inc. and/or InstallShield Co. Inc. All Rights Reserved.

Compiling...
Setup.Rul
Linking...
Setup.inx - 0 error(s), 0 warning(s)
Checking string table references...
Release - 0 error(s), 0 warning(s)
----------------

What am I missing?

Re: InstallShield does not create an MSI file

InstallScript projects use the InstallScript engine, not the Windows Installer engine, to run the installation. If you want to generate an .msi file (which Windows Installer runs on target systems), you need to use the Basic MSI project type, not an InstallScript project type.
