Install Shield Limited Edition No Application Files

Hi  I have just upgraded to Visual Studio 2010 and an trying to get the limited copy of install shield working.

My application has an exe and a number of dll’s.

I followed to seven-point wizard through “Application Information”,” Installation Requirements”,” Installation Architecture” to the “Application files” but when I click on the primary output of my project no files appear in the “Visual studio Output Selector” window?

Hi Despite the fact that the installation project was created from with the solution it was not adding it to the solution (and therefore not adding the files).

I did a file/add/existing project then added it and it started working

The installshield documentation is very poor in my view
Have other problems so I may post tomorrow, watch out.
