How do I change the output path with building an installation package through InstallShield in VS 2013?

Hi:

I've downloaded and installed "InstallShield Limited Edition Project" and am attempting to use it with Visual Studio 2013.
I'm building a simple installer for a C++ application.

I would like to change the location of where the resulting .msi file gets created when I build the installer through VS.
The default path that it gets created at is:

c:\XXX\....\Projectname\Express\DVD-5\DiskImages\DISK1


I looked at project properties, but I didn't see anything that allows me to change this directory location.
Can someone point me in the right direction?

Thanks,
JohnB

It's been a while since I worked with IS, but if I am not mistaken, you'll find a section like

[MediaInfo]
mediadata0=Default/Media\Default

Open in new window


in your .ipr file where you can adjust that.

Hey jkr:: Happy Sunday. For VS 2013 - InstallShield now uses a .isl file instead of a .ipr file.
The xml schema of the file is definitely different from that of earlier versions of installer.
I can live with this for now as it's not pressing.  Thx JXB
