InstalllShield 2018 R2 installer won't register Visual Studio 2019 extension
When I install InstallShield 2018 R2 , I don't get any extensions installed for Visual Studio 2019. This means that I can't edit .isproj files, Visual Studio says they are unsupported. How can I register InstallShield 2018 RS so that I can edit or even load my isproj files in Visual Studio 2019?
Hi @shackett ,
What was the order of installation of those two software?
- Expectation here is installation of visual studio first then installshield
- If it is of reverse,try executing TSConfig.exe /registerVSIP from cmd by navigating to [PROGRAMFILESX86]Installshield\\System folder
Hello. I have IS 2020 working with VS 2013 integration and am upgrading to VS 2019. How can I enable integration with VS 2019? TSCONFIG did not work. Also tried installation repair. Will try uninstall/reinstall next, but there should be a better way.
If you have installed InstallShield 2020 on a machine where you have installed VisualStudio 2019 professional or higher, then you can run the below command from an administrator command window :
1- C:\Program Files(x86)\InstallShield\2020\System\TSConfig /unregisterVSIP
2- C:\Program Files(x86)\InstallShield\2020\System\TSConfig /registerVSIP
The above command reintegrate InstallShield with visual studio again.
Jenifer - I'm resuming this effort at our company for shackett. I tried running TSConfig.exe /registerVSIP from the command line, per your suggestion, but it didn't help. Do you have another suggestion? As a reminder, we are trying to open a solution that contains an Install Shield (.isproj) project in Visual Studio 2019, after installing Visual Studio 2018 R2.
Hi @jkcraig ,
Hope you have executed the "TSConfig.exe /registerVSIP" in an administrator command prompt from InstallShield 2018 R2 system folder.
If InstallShield 2018 R2 failed to integrate with VS2019 after executing above command, then please reach out to Revenera support to analyze this further.
To share my experience: The above commands did not work with Visual Studio 2019 (16.11.9). Yes I ran them as an administrator. I tried every combination of command, rebooting, installing software, nothing worked.
On a whim I decided to install VS2017. After running those commands, VS2017 recognized InstallShield!
After that I went back to VS2019 and behold it now finally recognizes InstallShield.
Hope this helps someone.
