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


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:


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?

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


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
