I am new here.I saw some interesting posts here so I decided to register.

Here we go with my first question: What kind of application can I use to open a .ism file format?

Thanks in advance.

.Ism file is created when you are using Istall Shiled, just after the second capture.
So if Installshied is installed on your system, and you doble click on that ism file it will open and after that you can build and create the .msi file.

Depends what you want to achieve.

.ism files are InstallShield Project files (which are structurely very similar to .msi files).

If you don't have access to the InstallShield Editor, you can open .ism files in ORCA, the latter being a free (but basic) table editor supplied with the Windows Platform SDK.

If you wish to do anything other than merely inspecting the contents of ISM files, you would need to get hold of the InstallShield Editor (part of AdminStudio).

In ISM files. different types of projects will be there.

If the ISM is created as "Basic MSI Project" then all its structure is similar to msi and we can rename the .ism file to .msi and edit the changes to the tables using orca and rename it back.
