View Full Version : Size of MSI file

05-08-2002, 11:09 AM
I have made an MSI that does three simple tasks.
1. Copies a file (80KB)
2. Calls a third party executable (Media Player)
3. Calls another third party executable (Media Player Patch)

When I build the MSI I compress all files into a single MSI and do not have Admin Studio create setup.exe or windows installer files. My end result is an MSI that is about 10MB. I have seen other MSI's that merely call third party executables and their MSI file size is 200-300 KB.

What am I doing wrong?

If you build it with all the files uncompressed outside of the MSI, are there any files that you weren't expecting to see? what size is it now?
