App Installer theme adds 30MB to installer

I have a small app that when specifying the Installer classic theme results in an exe or msi installer size of 6 to 7 MB. If I select the App Installer theme it balloons out to over 30MB. If I change back to a Classic theme the exe file does not reduce in size.
The App Installer theme adds significant code to the install file which remains even when switching to another theme.
I am on v21.8.2.

Re: App Installer theme adds 30MB to installer

I think I see the reason: Changing to App installer theme changes WinUi settings that add to the installer size. Changing back to the Classic theme does not reset these settings.

Re: App Installer theme adds 30MB to installer

Hello David,

I have tested this and can indeed confirm the behavior.

I forwarded this to our dev team so it can be fixed in a future version of Advanced Installer.

Thank you for bringing this to our attention!

Best regards,
