I am a user of InstallShield 6.3 Professional in the current time for the application, developed in Visual C++, J++.

In the last time the application was converted into C#, that needs migration to the new installation instrument, that supports .NET installations.

The question is what instrument is more suitable for me - Developer or next version of Professional...

I have not used developer, but I would like to give you a warning about moving to IS 7.0 - we have had no less than 15 issues with migrating installs (5 of which are known IS issues, no note on when they'll be fixed).  If you do, make sure to keep backups of the 6.3 versioned projects, as 7.0 tends to corrupt legacy installs.
