Need help converting InstallScript to InstallScript MSI

Hello,

We have the Installshield-2016-Pro

 

Is there a way to convert the project type automatically or is this manual work?

What are the steps?

 

Thanks,

Jerry

Re: Need help converting InstallScript to InstallScript MSI

There's no automatic process that Installshield can provide here unfortunately.

Flexera does have a product called Adminstudio which includes functionality called the Repackager. This will allow you to capture an installation and convert that to an .msi and Basic MSI project.
You can then convert the Basic MSI project into an Installscript MSI project using Installshield.

Be aware however that this repackaging process will not retain any Installscript logic, it will only capture what happens during the installation process.

If you don't want to go down this route, then it would be a manual process of creating a new project from scratch.

Where can I download this Adminstudio that includes Repackager? I have the
license for IS 2016 Pro.

Thanks!
