My ISM file with InstallShield 2021 does not create msi file

My ISM file from Installshield 2012 created a setup.msi and setup.exe.

Now using same ISM file, InstallShield 2021 only creates setup.exe.  It looks like the MSI file is imbedded in the Setup.exe.  I sign the setup.exe outside of InstallShield. This appears to be causing the MSI file on uninstall to not be signed. How can I have InstallShield 2021 create both setup.msi and setup.exe files?

Hi @jlansford,

Thank you for your post.

Please accept our apologies for the confusion and frustration.

Firstly, are you using an evaluation copy of InstallShield 2021 R1? Or a fully licensed copy?

Secondly, if in the Releases View, you right-click Releases and select New Product Configuration, right-click the newly created product configuration and select New Release, select Compression > Uncompressed under the Build Tab of the release, then build the project, does the issue still occur?

Hope that helps.

Please let us know if you have any questions or concerns. Thank you for your patience and cooperation.
