You need to create a folder in your machine C:\Data and copy files in to it and the same will be copied to C:\Test  folder in your docker image.

docker run -it -v "C:\Data:C:\Test" flexerasoftware/installshield:sab2021r2 cmd

In KB article below last steps is mentioned how to use the iscmdbld.exe to build project in docker

Under Build project Via docker section


similar steps you need to do, once you pulled the image,



  1. Run the following command to create a container and mount directory in an interactive process (which is nothing but C:\Data and C:\Test in above shared example)
  2. Navigate to C:\Program Files (x86)\InstallShield\2019 SAB\System
  3. Run the following command to build your project:
    IsCmdBld.exe -p "C:\InstallShield Projects\MyAppProject.ism"

docker run -it -v "C:\Data:C:\Test" flexerasoftware/installshield:sab2022r1 cmd

After running the above command C:\Test folder not created.

I need to pass "cmd" itself? or it has any meaning?
