I have existing projects made with InstallShield Limited Edition.
InstallShield LE is not provided any more with VS 2017.
There is an add-on providing installer functionality, but it cannot import these old projects.
Any help (besides of creating the project new using the new add-in)?

What I have tried:

I installed the add-in and tried to open the old solution.
Got the message, "This project is incompatible with the current edition"

Only InstallShield is going to open up those older projects. You can get InstallShield Express from here[^]. Keep in mind, it's not free but a trial.

Thank you very much!

So I could use the trial to open the project and view the details - and rebuild it using e.g. "Microsoft Visual Studio 2017 Installer Projects" ([^]).

Sounds like a usable workaround.
