Description (last modified by jbirch)

The size of the installer could be decreased by about 30% to 65MB by not compressing the CAB as part of the WiX build, and using a SetCompressor option during the NSIS bootstrap creation.

I don't know about you, but I've been getting EVEN SMALLER installer sizes. The installer I just built clocks in at 49.1MB!

Either I am missing something, or you're packaging extra junk files, or this NSIS compressor is really good!
