Size of MSI

Reported by: michelpons Owned by: ahsanakhtar
Priority: major Milestone: Refactoring
Component: COLoggers Version: 1.08.3
Keywords: Cc: michaelhalloran, ahsanakhtar


Size of the MSI file for COLTT 1.08.3 (Build Oct 27, 2009) is 22,178 Kbytes while it was only 4,646 Kbytes for the MSI of COLTT 1.07. Refactoring was not supposed to give way to such an increase in code size. So why such an increase?

could you investigate this size increase as requested in my email.

I think the size of MSI increased due to two reasons:

  1. Some new files has been added after upgrading to VS 2008
  2. I uses previous version MSI to build the new one in InstallShield that increases the size (that's my past experience)

To fix this issue, I need to re-create the MSI from scratch that will take 6-7 hours to build and test. Hence, I will be able to send you the MSI tomorrow evening along with the three changes incorporated that you mentioned in today's email.

Indeed the COLTT 1.08.4 MSI has been reduced to 9,317 Kbytes so to less than one half of the sizes for 1.08.3 versions. That is a good result.
