I am not sure what project type you are really talking about? You have posted in the non-MSI Installscript project section, but it sounds like you may be dealing with an Installscript-MSI. These are very different projects. Please verify what kind of project you are using.
For the record: non-MSI Installscript works ok as far as I know, but the Installscript-MSI suffers from several serious bugs that seems to have caused experienced setup developers to abandon its use altogether. With some effort you can convert it to a Basic MSI project which works much better. I have done this with several problematic setups, and it does require a significant cleanup at times.
If you are using non-MSI, I do not have experience using this project type.

I found this article, it should show you how you can relatively quickly convert your Installscript MSI project to Basic MSI.
I haven't tested it, but it should do the job. I guess you should compile an MSI from your Installscript ISM and convert the MSI and not the ISM, but you can try both and see what works best. Would be interesting to hear the result. I don't have access to Installshield at the moment.
