this is a really vague question, but i'll give it a shot:
1) compile your code as release
2) check your dependencies
3) InstallShield is a separate piece of software, so its not directly tied to studio
4) IS creates a project which consists of a main script (that you shouldn't have to edit by hand) and several resources
5) within IS, specify install directories and any registry settings
6) specify what files are to be installed and where (this is relatively easy, just look through resources)
7) add splash screen image
8) build the IS project and it'll compile like any other piece of code and give you errors or compile successfully
9) take the product of IS (which is an executable and compressed files, or single file installer, depending on options) and place in your distribution media

its pretty easy to do it just by looking through the windows... and remember that you don't really have to edit the IS script by hand (and probably shouldn't)

Your best source for this information is probably the InstallShield site. I'm sure they have user forums where you can get accurate answers for your questions.
