Hi All

I am converting an installation written in Installshield Professional 5.53, 6.33 to my machine. However I dont have the exact Installshield Professional versions in which the installation projects were created. When I try to open the Installshield Professional projects(.ipr extension) with Installshield Professional 7, all the project information is lost. Please inform me how I can extract following information from the Installshield Professional installation files.

Paths of source files.
Names of source files.
String tables.

These information are lost when I open the projects with Installshield Professional 7.

Regards Amalka

This information should not get lost. If it does, you can request free support from Installshield, based on their migration guarantee.
However all the project files are text files, so you can open them in Notepad and look at the contents.
