Problems creating a Windows Installer Package msi file with limited edition Installshield

I recently upgraded from VS 2008 to VS 2013 with the limited edition of Installshield. One problem I am having is that the windows file created by the installshield project is an application file *.exe (setup.exe) file rather than windows installer package *.msi file. The setup.exe installs my software fine except when downloaded from my website (not quite sure why, but have tried on a number of different computers and will not install when downloaded), and that is how my clients obtain my software. There have been no issues installing msi files created by VS 2008 setup projects that are downloaded from my website. So my question, is there a way to get the limited edition Installshield project to create an windows installer package (msi file) rather than an *.exe file (have not figured out how), or do I need to upgrade to the express version of Installshield, assuming that will that fix the issue.

I cannot say for 2013, but in 2012, you needed to set the compression setting to Uncompressed to prevent the inclusion of the .msi into setup.exe

I figured it out, in the Solution Explorer click Releases and then go to the Setup.exe tab and select "No" for Setup Launcher. When Setup Launcher is set to Yes, which is the default, it will wrap the msi installation package in a exe application.
