Using Installshield on a VB.NET solution
Posted on 2005-02-24
I have previously used VB6 and created installation packages from Installshield X Express. This was simple task of opening Installshield and pointing it at my VB6 project file, it then built a basic installation package which I could modify as required.
I have now tried doing a similar thing on my VB.NET solution using the Installshield wizard, it prompts for the .sln file but then simply fires up VB.NET but does not create an installation package or appear to do anything. It does not make any changes to my VB solution explorer or create an Installshield .ise file.
I am using Visual Basic .Net Standard (ie not full visual studio .net). Am I missing something on how it creates the package, as I said I had no problems with VB6 but cannot see anything in VB.Net
