The InstallShield development team is #2 on my list of "Those-put-against-the-wall-when-the-revolution-comes" (*). The last time I tried to use it, it was a bloated pig that would not, out of the box, create an installer for even a single EXE. You had to manually edit the MSI files it created to make them work. I spent three weeks trying to create an installer for our product using it. We had purchased the 'international' version, which was supposed to support localized installers for European and Far Eastern languages. When I discovered that we also had to spend $500 per language, we abandoned it. I replicated all of our work to that point using Inno Setup[^] in less than a single day.
 
(*) The number #1 spot, of course, is occupied by the Lotus Notes team.
