We have successfully integrated Ant with Instal Shield.  We are using IS
Professional 7.
There were some issues integarting the two but it was not that bad.  At
first we had to create the .ipr file in the IS tool itself but this was not
the optimal solution.  So we looked at the .ipr format and wrote an Ant task
that we call to create the .ipr file for us then we execute IS with that.
It works quite well.
