InstallShield in VS2012 and encryption of app.config

I have a windows application created in Visual Studio 2012 and InstallShield Limited Edition.
I want to encrypt the connection string in app.config.
I've googled and spent many hours researching to no end. Can someone please tell me how to do this?
In Visual Studio 2010, we could use the Setup project but in VS2012 this has been replaced with InstallShield.

Hello Debbie,

The functionality is not built in. You will need to create a custom action to do this.
Perhaps ASP.NET IIS Registration Tool might do what you need?
