    Reducing DLLs in installation



    From looking at the dependencies of the DLLs in my project, it appears that
    InstallShield includes a few more DLLs in its automatic review than are
    actually needed. They are also a different composition than that listed in
    the MS Wizard DEP file. What DLLs are required by InstallShield for its
    installation process? If I know that and include those DLLs along with the
    DLLs my DLLs are dependent on, it appears that I can cut the size of my
    installation. Am I thinking correctly?

    InstallShield needs none of the DLLs that are included in the filegroups,
    since those are decompressed during the installation, and not before.

    If you know that the DLLs included WILL be on the target system, and ARE of
    the right version, then by all means, remove them.
