Is there any way to prevent the data1.cab and related files from being copied to the target machine (in the ...\InstallShield Installation Information\<guid> folder) during an install? My data1.cab file is taking up almost 40mb of additional space on a workstation.

Thank you!
Blake

The data1.cab and other related files are required by setup for maintenance and uninstallation. If you do not require any maintenance and uninstallation, you can prevent setup from copying these files by adding the following code in the onMoving event:
ComponentSelectItem(MEDIA, "Disk<1>", FALSE);
