Most of the recent versions of InstallShield support MSI -> ISM conversion via the File .. Open .. dialog box.

Start InstallShield and select File .. Open .. then browse to your MSI. In the same dialog box there should be a dropdown selection to open the file as 'Auto' or 'Wizard'. You need to select 'Wizard' and then you will be prompted if you wish to convert to ISM.



  • I can't see that option in Installshield latest version.Is there any other alternative. - ur00361883 6 years ago

...pretty much like it says in the Help file, in fact.

BTW, how does your question qualify as one about 'Windows Installer Errors'? This forum is for questions about errors returned by the WI engine (see the link 'MSI Errors' at the top of each forum page for examples). You ought to have posted in the 'package Development' forum. A moderator may well move this thread there.
Rating comments in this legacy AppDeploy message board thread won't reorder them,
so that the conversation will remain readable.
