Windows Listed Installer Size Doubles After Upgrade

In Control Panel -> Programs and Features, Windows displays our application as 12.4MB for a fresh install. However, upgrading to the next version shows 27.5MB, despite the installer size and the application size not really changing.

Additionally, performing a fresh install of the updated version shows a similar size to the previous version. Our perception is that the listed size should be the same, whether the install was an upgrade or was fresh. Any explanation for why this is not the case? Is there anything we can do to make the displayed size match the expected size after an upgrade?

Re: Windows Listed Installer Size Doubles After Upgrade

Hello,

Unfortunately, I can not say for sure why this is happening.

if possible, could you please share with me the following resources:

- a copy of the AIP file that builds v1

- a copy of the AIP file that builds v2

- download link for v1

- download link for v2

by email at support at advancedinstaller dot com so I can run some tests and further investigate this?

Best regards,
Catalin
