Information about the .iss (iss) file type

This is one of two possibilities that we have on file for the .iss file extension, follow this link to view both possibilities.

Below is all the information we have available on file about the .iss (iss) file type.

InstallShield Silent response file. A file that contains responses to the dialogs which InstallShield would normally otherwise show during an installation.

The responses contained in the .iss file are used in place of the normal install dialogs, this allows the installation to proceed silently, i.e. without any user intervention or any display of information to the user.

The file format is similar to that of .ini files.
