Installer Class - Error 1001 InstallShield 2015 Limited Edition


I'm getting the Error 1001 every time I active the Installer Class option on my Primary Output Projects. In Service, Console or any kind of project this error has dropped.

I'm using Windows 10 (version 1607), Visual Studio 2015 with update 3 and InstallShield 2015 Limited Edition.
My Projects are developed using .NET Framework 4.5. C#

Does anyone know how to fix it?

I'll help point you guys in the right direction:

The actual error is buried. It won't show in your logfile--error -1001 is just what the Microsoft InstallUtilLib.dll passes back when there's an error inside the installer class.

Your best bet is to debug it yourself by inserting a Debugger.Launch() statement inside your Installer Class and then stepping through with Visual Studio.

Good luck!
