I have noticed that a common scenario among new users of InstallShield is that they do not know what kind of project they have.
It generally goes like this. A person is an application developer in a company and their boss gives them an existing InstallShield installation project that was done by someone else. It is now their job to add new functionality to the installation. The problem is they don’t even know what kind of project they have.
The easiest way to determine this is to open the project in the IDE and look at the title bar. The project type will be shown in square brackets.
