Unable to create a "InstallScript MSI Project" in VS2010

I have tried to convert a working "Basic MSI" project to a "InstallScript MSI Project", using "InstallShield 2011" standalone, the option is not available inside VS2010. The resulting install does nothing but reports sucess.

I have also tried to create a new "InstallScript MSI Project" inside VS2010, but this hangs VS.

I am using VS 10.0.30319.1 RTMRel, Windows 7 Professional SP1 x64, and InstallShield 2011 Version 17 Hotfix A.

Any help appreciated.

I finally have a "InstallScript MSI" project. This is how I did:

1) Create a "Basic MSI" project.
2) Convert it to "InstallScript MSI" in standalone InstallShield
3) During install, choose "Custom", choose all components
