InstallShield 2013 automation process

InstallShield version: 2013

At the current moment, we create installation using the GUI.

For automation, I want to make the whole process from a PowerShell script.

I can't find an API for this.

As part of the process, I need to:

  1. Increment version
  2. Compile
  3. Build
  4. Release Wizard (press Next on most of the pages but not all of them)

I'm using PowerShell for the script and not VBscript.

Yes, you can do the same with powershell as well, You can refer below KB article which has example script to create a project and add some custom action in to it,

To Answer your question4, Automation script will help you set the values in required field, it wont helps you in clicking NEXT button, Instead we can add(create) a new release and set the values to all fields using automation scripts.
