1. InstallShield Professional 6 doesn't support MSI. You will need another version to build Windows Installer (MSI) setups. InstallShield 11 can do both (InstallScript and MSI)

2. There's no direct way to convert the project types (InstallShield 11 has a "InstallScript MSI" which is a mixture of both but I strongly recommend to avoid it). So you basically have to start over.
