Hello!

I have a small problem with Install shield Express which comes with
delphi3. My problem is that my setup-files is about 4Mb large although
my own program only is 1.2Mb.
I use paradox-tables in my application so I have to include the database
drivers but what I´d like to know is if there are any files that
Install shield Express throws in by default that I can do without?

Paradox tables are all I use and ofcourse I need the SQL-engine.

Can anyone help me....?

Did you select the FULL BDE Install (the preferred method)? If so, the
complete BDE will be installed, whether you like it or not. The full BDE
will take quite a lot of space.
