Compatibility / upgrade my Installshield 2015 Limited Edition to a newer version ?

Hi,

I'm in charge of an Installshield project that was made with Installshield 2015 Limited Edition (Free).

I tried to use the key fetched 5 years ago (it worked until now) to activate my Installshield 2015 Limited Edition.

But it doesn't work anymore.

I tried online activation, even offline activation, without success.

 

So...I don't know what to do.

Is it possible to migrate my 2015 Installshield project ? => it's a *.sln project I can't open with the free trial version of Installshield 2022 (I wanted to try this version).

I'm very embarrassed... 😓

 

Do you have any idea please?

 

Thanks.

Hi @lboutet 

 Are you trying to open the isl file using visual studio with Installshield 2022?

Yes, its possible to upgrade *.isl project to latest installshield. 

Open Is2022 IDE (not in visual studio), and go to file --> Open and then select the isl file you want to upgrade, and click open

The project will be upgraded to latest installshield with name .ism (your existing .isl will be available in same location)

First of all, thanks for your answer 🙂

My 2015 Installshield project is just a *.sln project, not *.isl 😐

There will be an isl file, you need check inside your project folders. .sln is a visual studio project file, 

with respect to installshield project files you will see .proj file and .isl file.
