We are developing an XLL in Visual Studio Express 2017 for Windows Desktop, but cannot find the Create Setup Project option. I tried to install the Wix Toolset Visual Studio 2017 Extension as well as Microsoft Visual Studio Installer Projects, but I still can't find where to create the MSI. Is this possible in the Express edition of Visual Studio?

Hello grantwohl,

Visual Studio Express doesn't support any installation software products. Consider switching to Visual Studio Community Edition. It is a full-featured Visual Studio edition free for developers.
