Using InstallShield ISM projects in Azure Pipelines

Hi Team, Is there a way to build our existing InstallShield projects (ISM files) in Azure Pipelines. We tried exploring various tasks in Azure Pieplines to build our ISM projects but did not find anything related to building InstallShield projects. We currently use InstallShield 2016

Re: Using InstallShield ISM projects in Azure Pipelines

Hi @SnehaBarse ,

 

You can try the following:

  • Try setting up concurrent license server running on azure instance
  • You can have build machines that have SAB installed(Stand Alone Build)
  • Those standalone build machines can connect to concurrent licensing servers by which IsCmdBuild can build InstallShield projects

 

Hope it helps,

Thanks,

Jenifer

Re: Using InstallShield ISM projects in Azure Pipelines

@Jenifer , this would require using a Self Hosted Build machine right?  No way to integrate ISM builds with a Microsoft Hosted Agent?

Re: Using InstallShield ISM projects in Azure Pipelines

Hi @RWatson ,

 

If you want to achieve that you have to:

  • install Installshield SAB on MS hosted agent
  • Based on licensing method,you have to go for server.ini file update with server IP and port if it is concurrent licensing
  • You have to create License.ic file having said mac_address of VM have to be given in license file.I doubt this may work since need to check on the impact of dynamic MAC_ADDRESS been created each time.
  • Concurrent licensing you can go for which might work without any issues

Thanks,

Jenifer
