VS2012 Installshield LE has no 64-bit msi support? Really?

InstallShield LE with VS2012 works fine for installing my 64-bit C++ Windows application but when I try to add the necessary 64-bit run-time I get the following build error:

Error 1 -5008: This 32-bit package cannot include 64-bit data. The 64-bit data may come from a merge module. ISEXP : error : -5008: This 32-bit package cannot include 64-bit data. The 64-bit data may come from a merge module.

How can you build an installer for 64-bit apps if you cannot include the 64-bit MSI for "Visual C++ 11.0 CRT (x64)" ?

Is there a work-around for this?

Hello Edward,

Kindly navigate to Specify Application Data-> Files

Right click on the specified project that has the dependency. Choose "Dependencies from scan at build". Uncheck the unwanted files if any and build your setup project.

Please let me know if this did not help.

Thanks,
Chaitra
